Worried about our food?
RISING FOOD PRICES
The cost of basic food items such as grains, vegetables, and fruits has been steadily increasing with no end in sight.

GMOs and pesticides can harm biodiversity, contaminate water and soil, harm beneficial insects, and can have negative impacts on human health.
Food security issues affect the availability and accessibility of sufficient, safe, and nutritious food for individuals and communities.

Food forests are easy to maintain and produce more healthy food over time.
What is a Food Forest?
A food forest is a diverse, perennial garden that mimics a forest ecosystem and patterns found in nature. Through layers of design, life extends in all directions producing food, medicine, sanctuary, and habitat. A food forest is thoughtfully designed to produce maximum nutrition, beauty and abundance.
Why start with a design?
Get it Right, the FIRST Time!
Buying and placing perennial plants on your property is a big investment of your time and money to begin with, and you often won’t know if you were successful until at least a year or more has passed.
Our designers thoroughly evaluate your property when considering what plants are selected, how they are placed, and how water and people move through the landscape for ongoing growth and abundance.
We Know Plants…and The Company They Like to Keep!
Not only will we help you select varieties of edible plants that will flourish in your climate, but we will select “companions” to create communities of plants that are stronger together than they would be alone.
Pest & Weed deterrence, Nitrogen Fixation (improving soil fertility), Pollinator Attraction, Habitat, Mulch, and Compost Production are just some of the functions happening in these thoughtfully designed systems.
Designed for YOU

Questions & Answers
How much space do I need?
We designed a food forest on 700 square feet in Orlando, FL and it’s loaded with over 40 food and medicine producers. Through the layers of a food forest and what’s planted, more can be yielded in the same square footage of space as an annual garden.
How long does it take to get food?
Food forests are forever. Perennial plants can take between 2 and 5 years typically, however, we also plant annual vegetables for your short-term food supply.
What is the process?
You first share details with us about your space, how much you want designed, and what you want out of your food forest. Your designer will gather the information they need and use Google Earth and other tools to assess your property and create the food forest design of your dreams.
How much will an installation cost?
An average backyard installation costs about the same as conventional landscaping. We can grow a lot of food for $10K.
Do you provide installation services?
Yes. We work with our network of local food forest installers, in locations all across the country and globally, to ensure your designed food forest is installed professionally and to the highest standards. If you are in a remote area, or an area that we do not yet serve, we will do our best to travel to you.
Where can you design and install a food forest?
Since our launch on Earth Day 2021, we have designed food forests for customers in 40 states and 15 countries, including resorts in Thailand, large farms in Africa, and single family residences from Poland to Mexico and all around the United States.

I don't know the first thing about gardening. How can I maintain my Food Forest?
Our food forest designs are low-maintenance and, over time, self-sustaining like a natural forest would be. We will create a design that suits your lifestyle and provide any necessary care instructions, support, and training. The best way to maintain is to observe and interact with joy.
