What Kind of Nut Are You?

No matter what you're nutty about, we think there's a case to be made for nut trees. This is a resource for integrating nut trees into gardens, farms, community spaces, and permaculture designs. Go deeper on each nutty profile by following the links below.

Nut trees have a special place in most permaculturists’ hearts, and here at Nutcase we are no exception. With their ability to supply protein, fat and carbs in a perennial system, nuts are permaculture superstars that have the potential to provide sustenance in a holistic ecologically sustainable future. At Nut Case we want to help all you “Permanuts” fit nut trees into your Permaculture designs. 

Check out our Permanut Page for ideas and resources to help nuts thrive in your permaculture project.

Community groups looking to fight climate change, support learning programs, and build local food resiliency will find that nuts have a lot to offer.  With their low-maintenance beauty and recurring yields of local calories, planting nut trees in a community setting is practical action at its finest. Here at Nutcase we are committed to supporting community nut planting by providing trees, tools and resources. Send us an email if you have a project you want to tell us about!

Botanut: Nuts for the Garden

Are you a gardener who is constantly pushing the boundaries of a normal garden?  For botanical enthusiasts adding nuts to a plant collection will provide many yields, from tasty nuts, to leaves for mulch, to summer shade, to exotic trees to show off to friends.  Even though most nut orchards are in warm places far away, we have the ability to grow many nuts in Canada.  Some even lend themselves to coppicing (cutting down every few years and allowing them to resprout) which can provide useful wood posts and keep them bush sized for the garden.  Here at Nut Case we have our horticultural roots as gardeners who got excited about nuts and were eventually led to farming to accommodate our nutty habits.  We understand the pleasure and beauty that can be found in the garden.
