Create a Food Forest

Wednesday, April 14, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Create a Food Forest

Wednesday, April 14, 2:00pm

Speaker: Lincoln Smith, Founder, Forested

Learn how your community can incorporate edible native plants into an existing greenspace for the purpose of maintaining a healthy environment, providing food to local residents and food and habitat to local wildlife.

Food Forests can benefit the community by creating a public space wherein edible food is grown in an existing environment, thus maintaining a greenspace while also providing a new purpose.

Food forests can provide benefits such as:

  • providing a local, visible source of food for residents and wildlife
  • promoting food security in areas which may be food deserts
  • increasing biodiversity and wildlife habitat
  • contributing to the management of stormwater runoff and urban heat island effect
  • bringing the community together by encouraging volunteers to participate in its maintenance
  • Improving human health
