What is a Native Food Forest?
Based on the science of permaculture, a food forest is a nature-inspired multifunctional agricultural system with native fruits, berries, and other edibles. Edible plants are planted up, down and around in a multidimensional design.
A native food forest is self-sustaining once established.
Scientists have recently discovered that local indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest have historically deliberately cultivated such native food forests.
Edible plants that might be planted in a native food forest, include: crab apple, salmonberry, Indigenous plum, Coastal strawberry, nodding onion, and many more!
