5 star experience in every way! Incredible purpose driven company that is sowing the seeds for an abundant future. They live up to the name, Food Forest Abundance. Last year, I was excited about having a vegetable garden and planting a couple of blueberry bushes. This year, after partnering with Graham from Food Forest Abundance, I now have a detailed plan to install 10 fruit trees, 2 hazelnut bushes, 60 berry bushes, a greenhouse, a variety of perennial plants, and more! While still leaving room for activities and social gatherings on my small urban lot. Their name says it all - food forests truly lead to abundance, which is the natural language of this beautiful planet. The entire process was simple, empowering, and inspiring. Graham was lovely to work with - he is a wealth of knowledge and answered every question I had in a friendly, conversational way. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and learned so much! I'm so grateful for FFA and am thrilled to convert my yard to an abundant food forest this summer :D.

I had a fantastic 30 minute FREE session with Allen C.! My garden experience is above average, so I did some homework, watched some FFA videos, and had specific questions ready for our session. I have already put some permaculture practices in place since our conversation! Thank you! It's exciting to delve into a new way of thinking about food production!

My husband and I got to come out to the farm the other week and were so impressed! Jim gave us the tour and it was a such an educational and wonderful experience. Not to mention, we got to eat some delicious plants along the way (I always love to snack while learning). Looking forward to everything Food Forest Abundance has planned. Keep up the great work!!

I can not say for sure if I was led to Jim Gale’s YouTube Food Forest Abundance video by Universe or my search history. However, my follow up meeting with Annette Argabright is changing my life. She opened up the doors to all the things I was only dreaming of and said yes. It is a wonderful time to be a live and there is a lot of work to do. I am forever grateful for the support and kindness that I know we will share a long this journey.

Just wanted to give huge kudos to Annette Argabright for the invaluable 30-minutes of time, plus thorough follow-up info, that she shared with me. She imparted knowledge, wisdom and multiple tools to help me expand my permaculture space and build a gratifying & productive food forest in my yard. I'm super excited about next steps, so needed as I aim to be a wise land steward - and to help Nature flourish. Thank you, Annette. 🙂

Quick response, great customer service. I had my first call with FFA and I am looking forward to work with people align with such and important and sometime underestimated matter such as growing and provide food. Nature among so many things, is about abundance, giving and sharing, and FFA knows about that and apply it in the way they do business.
