Welcome To The Future of Food

Connecting People to each other through Soil Education 

 Forests are a great example of nature’s capacity to thrive in diverse conditions.

As our need for more Restorative and Regenerative land practices grows, the forest is an excellent guide for building ecologically sound landscapes, as well as food systems. 


Food Forestry uses bio-mimicry, a regenerative and restorative solution to agroecology that imitates nature. Mimicking natural systems of a forest, decreases maintenance.


Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
