To build a free, healthy, and abundant society for generations to come.


Food forests growing in every community and in every yard around the world.

Designing Freedom Into Every Landscape

Food Forest Abundance was established in 2020 as a way to help people grow their own food and has blossomed into a global movement to help people become more self-reliant.

Since our official launch on Earth Day 2021, we have expanded throughout most of the United States and into 15 other countries.
