What is a food forest?

A food forest is a low maintenance edible landscape (if you design it well and after a few seasons)for your backyard or your empty lot that yields lots of food.
It includes mostly perennial plants,fruit and nut trees by focusing on guilds,companion planting ,your local climate and uses the layered design of a forest.

Come learn how to get started on your own food forest by learning about Permaculture, guilds and with hands on techniques for maximum yield such as berm,swales and more!
