Food Forest Design and Care for Cities and Suburbs

with Toby Hemenway

Food forests, or edible forest gardens, are life-filled places that not only provide food for people, but habitat for wildlife, carbon sequestering, biodiversity, natural soil building, beauty and tranquility, and a host of other benefits. This workshop covers the basics of designing, planting, and maintaining a many-layered woodland garden of fruit and nut trees, perennial and annual vegetables, and flowers. In this class Toby gives you both the theory behind food forests and a wealth of practical information, including which plants to use, where to start, and what to expect as your food forest grows.

Hagarville Permaculture Food Forest Project

Permaculture Food Forest Project - Year 1

Author: Mike
The Hagarville Food Forest Project is being conceptualized and built by Mike and Cara Hagar, who moved onto a 2.4 acre property in Mead in February of 2012.  The property was 1 acre of alfalfa and 1.4 acres of lawn.  It is our intention to augment our food supply as much as we can by using Permaculture Principles.  We are using Landscape Design software to plan and visualize and plan our multi year project.  After 1 year we have made better progress than we thought we would, due to the help of many in our community.
