In our last blog post, we dove into why you should consider fostering the space for an edible food forest. Essentially, the work is worth the reward for you and your community.
Interested in cultivating a food forest in your green space? We would love to help get you started- please fill out a food forest interest form.

Some of our favorite things to plant in an edible landscape.
If you’re like us, you want to find viable and sustainable solutions that surround gardening, farming, and food production. According to Foodprint.org, households are responsible for the largest portion of all food waste. ReFED estimates that US households waste 76 billion pounds of food per year. We understand that life gets crazy, and sometimes we don’t remember the leftovers tucked away on the fridge’s bottom shelf. That’s why we encourage individuals to consider growing some of the food they eat, that way; you’re more connected around the process of eating and growing and, in turn, become a more conscious consumer. Plus, you might also be helping feed the people in your community as well, and we love helping our neighbors!
