Shade or production?
The trees at Ligaya Garden serve two purposes – protection from the weather and food production. Unfortunately, the first interferes with the second.
The big Elder tree in the middle of the garden provides a lot of cooling shade, medicine and habitat but it deprives a range of food plants from Sunlight and therefore reduces their yields. It also uses a lot of water.
Its a ‘six of one…’ issue that, honestly, We’re stuck on. SO, I’m asking you, our friends, supporters and followers what your opinion is. Take it out or leave it?
