Food Forest

for Life

How We use perennials to create your food forest

Do It
Working With Nature
Ecological Designs
Permaculture creates permanent, sustainable agriculture by bringing together plants, water, earth, animals, and people who all contribute to it and benefit from it. Everything is in relationship to its environment; we build as many beneficial connections as we can!

Low-maintenance Edible Perennials

perennial edible plant Once established, perennials continue to produce, year after year. A sustainable system produces more energy than it takes to create and maintain it. Imagine being able to walk outside to the back yard and have abundant food, ripened on the tree or vine!
Soil Building
soil in food forest There are many techniques to build your soil: tilling, flood irrigation, adding minerals, worm castings, gypsum, coconut coir, organic fertilizers, sand, or bio-char depending on what your Food Forest soil needs. We use only natural materials, organic whenever possible. We do not use artificial fertilizers or pesticides.
water collection We can recycle our water, and also harvest rainwater. For wet climates, we utilize plants that like lots of moisture, and design your food forest with adequate drainage.
composting for food forest There are many ways of composting, from putting choppings directly into the ground, to building containers that age and decompose the choppings, to composting toilets.
Companion Planting
companion planting in food forest For each zone, we find nitrogen fixers that grow best, and which pollinators attract the most bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Companion planting is one of the magic keys of our designs.
sanctuary forest We can add a seating area, pond, gazebo, or walking paths to add to the beauty of your food forest. Your food forest can be a place for you to rest, relax, and connect with Nature.
Sheet Mulching
sheet mulching for food forest Sheet Mulching is a weed suppression technique, and it also helps greatly to build the bio-availability of the soil. All the material on top of the cardbord dies and builds the nutrient density of the soil. It will feed the plants later on. It is very important because it keeps the moisture in the soil and inhibits unwanted plants.
Raised Beds
raised beds for gardening Raised beds are simple to make, and can hold both perennials and annuals. Many people like them for convenience.
