Barbara Scheltus - van den Berg
I used to live in the city (Amsterdam and Leiden, in The Netherlands) where I had edible balconies and organized guerilla gardening days to spice up the city.
I was always intrigued by growing and foraging my own food. Our patio was crammed with fruit shrubs and vegetables and I had a weblog called "Wildplukker", about food foraging in the city.
I lived in urban environments until 2009, when my husband suggested to move to the countryside in Croatia.
In Croatia we live on 12 hectares of land which we designed as an edible landscape with permaculture principles. We have a good 3D kitchen garden, an edible fence and we started a forest garden.
