Old Tree Vision
Working with people and plants; brewing and gardening; drinks and landscapes, fermentation and creativity – Old Trees preserve the wisdom of the past as a celebration of the present to protect life for the future.
We are a botanical brewery established to invest in land regeneration, by producing botanical drinks for edible landscapes and combining food-forestry with fermentation.
In this time of mass extinction, our vision is for a future of renewed health through earth repair.
We define earth repair as ecosystem restoration that harnesses the full-power of plants and micro-organisms to rebuild soil and communities destroyed by over–industrial activity.
Old Tree stands for a mode of production that improves the quality of life in all spheres of activity. In a world of depleting finite resources, our focus is exploring ways to become more resourceful by harnessing the powers of plants and gardens to heal people and the help the Earth recover from pollution and over-extraction.
Finding ways to harness simple technology to make most efficient use of human labour there is a smaller way of producing for our needs that improves health and wellbeing, for both present and future generations. Surrounding ourselves with plant life is good for mental and physical health. Eating food directly from its source is the healthiest food can be for you. Soil has now been proven to contain beneficial microbes that are anti-depressant and make you feel happy! Food growing creates strong community ties that improve wellbeing across generations. We would all be better off if we lived in a massive forest garden, working with the plants and micro-organisms that made our existence on earth possible in first place.
