Grow your own fruit and low maintenance veggies/herbs with a food forest!

When we aren’t working on raised beds and gardens with an annual focus, we are working on food forests.  Food forests are a great way to take up a larger amount of space with plants that you can eat!  Food forests consist of fruit trees with a lot of other edible plants growing in the spaces around the fruit trees.

Food forests can be installed in a wide range of sizes, and are typically planted during the rainy season.  Once matured, food forests can provide abundant harvests all year long.  Since most of the plants in food forests are perennial, there is less of a need to replant as often as one does in an annual garden.  For more information on our food forests, visit our food forest page.
