Project Description

Create Your Own Food forest

A food forest is not growing food in a forest but instead making a garden like a forest. It imitates the natural ecology and pattern of healthy ecosystems where multiple species grow together intimately and symbiotically. So instead of just sticking an apple tree out in the lawn to defend itself in a sea of grass with weeds we create an extended mulch circle that is planted with useful and beautiful perennials that support the apple.

How to start creating your own food forest. We show you step by step how you can turn a “patch” of poor soil into a fruit tree oasis surrounded by beneficial perennials.
