Food Forest DIY
Transform your backyard into a beautiful, bountiful space, like your very own Garden of Eden
A food forest is a way to mimic nature. Just like a forest has multiple layers of growth – tall, canopy trees, smaller trees and shrubs, plants that grow along the ground, vines – we want to create systems in your backyard, that are beautiful, abundant, and productive.
Imagine having beautiful, fruiting trees, alongside fragrant herbs, with flowers that attract pollinators, and more tropical potatoes and spinach than you could ever use. Does that sound like a dream? Let’s make it reality!

Herb & TEA Garden
I’m a self-educated food forest enthusiast. I’ve spent the last five years learning, through trial and error, how to grow food in the tropics. On my two-acre farm in South Florida, I have an 8,000 square foot food forest with hundreds of fruiting plants, perennial vegetables and tropical root crops. Additionally, I’ve also schooled up on foraging – the identification of edible and/or medicinal native plants, what most people call weeds. I would love the opportunity to share with you some of what I’ve learned and help you make your land more productive.
Imagine if you knew where your food came from and were 100% sure that harmful chemicals and pesticides weren’t sprayed on the food your family eats.
Did you know that most of our produce travels 1,500 miles to get to our table? Whether it’s produce or farm fresh eggs, we’re 100% convinced that fresh is best! Both in flavor and quality.
Don’t be solely reliant on corporate food systems or global supply chains; growing on your own land and buying local is the best way to ensure food security for your family and your region.
