With food forests, we look at Nature’s systems and we copy them.
Food forests are natural ecosystems full of life and that look after themselves, just like a forest — but contain plants of our choosing.
When you hire us, you get expert help.
We’ll handle the design for you
We examine, measure, and mark off the site as needed, finishing up by plotting out a planter’s map.
Our Basic Starter Kit for a food forest will need up to 1024 square feet. Once we have completed our work, you can use the guidelines we’ll provide you with to increase the size of your food forest.
We’ll supply the mulch
For each food forest project, we will supply cardboard or heavy paper for sheet mulching, arrange for the mulch delivery, and be there to help your volunteers spread in selected areas (must be accessible for delivery truck).
Along with your team, we will arrange and plant your food forest according to the plot map established in the design phase.
We provide these 14 trees and shrubs plus 14 fences. This is our basic, most low-maintenance starter food forest. Other plants can be added.
Each food forest installation costs $2,500.00, which includes a donor bench, seed library, all the plants, fences, mulch, compost, soil, layout and design, an expert labor leader, and even geocaching where possible.
