Why a Food Forest?

Food forest is the ultimate organic, edible, sustainable, no-maintenance garden. 

Does a forest need tilling, weeding, fertilizers or irrigation?
Nope. And that’s what we’re going to create in your garden.

Not tilling preserves the natural soil structure, prevents loss of topsoil and allows all the tiny soil organisms to do their jobs – cycling nutrients and maintaining fertility. 

Food forests continually enrich the soil with organic matter as leaves fall and plants die back for the winter so no chemical fertilizers are needed.

The deep roots of trees and shrubs make them much more drought tolerant than annual vegetables, and they shade the smaller plants below, keeping everything lush and moist in a self-maintaining – highly sustainable – system.

As a result, food forests help restore land, biodiversity, and habitat while producing food. Lots of organic, nutrient-rich, healthy food.

The B.E.S.T. Principles of Design


We design your garden to be beautiful to all your senses.
Imagine your garden with abundance of colorful flowers and butterflies, water elements and wind chimes sounds, fragrant flowers and herbs, tasty fruits and vegetables and a million things to touch and feel.


We call our gardens "food forests" for a reason.
We help you choose the best fruit trees (both local and exotics), vegetables (both annuals and perennials), nuts and herbs (and honey, if you want) to provide you with fresh, organic, abundant produce... all year long.


We use permaculture principles to create a completely organic, ecologic, regenerative garden for you.
It is designed to work in co-creation with nature - requiring minimum labor, minimum water and no chemical fertilizers or pesticides EVER.


We design YOUR own Garden of Eden.
Our design follows your vision, your style, your taste.
We take your guidelines, wishes and dreams and design them into a unique, personal expression of who you are - providing you with what you need and want in your garden.

Questions & Answers

A food forest, or edible forest garden, is a permanent, self-sustaining, food production ecosystem.

Food forest typically includes 7 layers: tall trees, low trees, shrubs, non woody plants, root vegetables, ground covers and vines.

Each layer provides a home and food for beneficial insects, animals, and bacteria that then provide food or services to the other layers.

Together, they produce a vibrant, productive, abundant and mostly self-maintaining ecosystem.

There is no such thing as a food forest that uses chemical sprays or pest control methods.

Food forests depend on an active, diverse insect and animal population, which should keep pests under control.

Ground covers prevent weeds growing for the above-ground layers, trees and shrubs prevent compaction for the root layers, flowering plants provide food for pollinating insects, and other plants provide shelter for birds and insects that snack on pests.

Not really. While a food forest contains vegetable plants, it is not a traditional vegetable garden.

Vegetable gardens are generally planted each spring and either mowed over or tilled under each fall/winter. The process repeats each growing season.

While a vegetable garden technically contains fruits, like tomatoes, cucumbers, and watermelons, it does not include established fruits and nuts like apple trees, walnut trees, or blueberries. These are all permanent plants outside the scope of an annual vegetable garden.

Most backyards are suitable for some kind of food forest, although it may not work for all the foods you want to grow.

Walnut trees, for example, take 10-13 years to mature and produce nuts. They will reach up to 45 meter (150 feet) tall over their lifetime. This tree produces a lot of shade, so unless you have a large backyard, this is not a sustainable option.

Before you install a food forest, plan out what kind of foods you would like to produce. Expand beyond typical fruits and vegetables; look into fruit trees, nut trees, edible vines, and groundcovers.

If you have a small backyard, you may want to look into vertical growing options. Pergola with vines, larger containers with multiple plantings, and hanging planters can provide a miniature food forest setting.

Perennials are plants that live for more than a year.

One of the most important principles of sustainable agriculture is total coverage of the soil, all the time, with plants or at the very least mulch.

Perennial plants are more sustainable, as they provide a permanent ground cover protecting your precious soil from drying out and erosion.

Biodiverse systems are resilient systems, less prone to disease and pest attack, and better equipped to make optimal use of light, water and nutrients.

You also get a variety of harvests spread throughout the seasons, and a beautiful, interesting garden, full of wildlife.

This is exactly what you want your own food forest to be like.

To achieve a low maintenance abundance of fruit, nuts, berries and herbs you’ll want to create a forest-like system.

Where fertility comes from many sources, where fungi helps create organic material, where wildlife is your primary pest control, where soil holds water like a sponge, and where you have a high diversity of plants.
