Analog Forestry implementation at Belipola Arboretum provides a range of rare and nutritious foods.
Our 2019 strategy for "filling in the gaps" by planting tree crops and arboreal structures to prevent heat stress, as well as to support perennial food crops (liana and vines), has generated the possibility of creating menus that reflect the diversity of our Analog Forest..
Our food is the result of
- A wholesome and clean environment
- No toxins or agrochemicals
- A healthy organic soil as the growing substrate
- A sustainable design of native and exotic food crops
- Locally crafted tastes and flavors
- Dedicated attention to production and preparation.

Forest Garden experience
Our wealth is the forest system that which we observe and participate in symbiosis with.
We believe in considering the agronomic system we adhere by, "the forest is the most benevolent of living organisms, giving generously it's fruit and creating a vast allowance for life".
Belipola Analog Forest will inspire your creativity and experience you in an elemental state of nature immersion.
We will soon offer you your personal Forest Garden Tea experience which you can actively participate in the process of harvesting.
