Native Food Forest
Free the Fern Stewardship Society created a Native Food Forest along the Champlain Heights Trail in 2023. Thanks for the 204 volunteers, throughout the course of project, who helped with invasive removal and native planting.
What is a Food Forest?
A Native Food Forest is an area that is filled with plants that benefit humans, but also provide food for birds and insect pollinators.
Our Native Food Forest is planted along the beautiful Red Alder Trail in South Vancouver.
Free the Fern organized 10 free public events as part of our Native Food Forest Project. These included outreach, stewardship and art events.
