Food Forest Public Meeting

Join us to dream and plan a food forest in Swan Creek Park! It will be located near the existing Community Garden off Roosevelt Rd at E. 42nd St. Share your ideas with the planning team of what you'd like to see in this edible forest garden. Get involved in the team. Even if you don't live in the adjacent community, we welcome your participation. We'd love to inspire other gardens throughout Tacoma! This will be our test garden!

Details are still being worked out but our intention is to offer translators for our non-English-speaking neighbors. And we'll have information about following events such as a work party to begin clearing the site of some of the brush so we can get into the wooded areas. There will be a workshop in October (details coming!) on the permaculture design process of site assessment and analysis, too, so let us know if you're interested in that.

Hope to see you there! Bring your friends and family and let's see what we can grow!

    I won't be able to make it to the meeting tonight but I would like to be included in any sort of email list if there will be updates, future meetings, work parties.

      Most folks signed up for more than one group but it'll be fine if someone just wants to gather food. Here's the link to the FB page. https://www.facebook.c...­
