The goal of the Beacon Food Forest is to design, plant and grow an edible urban forest garden that inspires our community to gather together, grow our own food and rehabilitate our local ecosystem. A food forest is a gardening technique or land management system, which mimics a woodland ecosystem by substituting edible trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals. The Beacon Food Forest will combine aspects of native habitat rehabilitation with edible forest gardening.

Beacon Food Forest is looking for volunteers to help improve public health by regenerating our public land into an edible forest ecosystem. They work to reduce agricultural climate impact, improve our local food security, provide educational opportunities, and celebrate growing food for the benefit of all species.

Also, Caffe Vita will be donating hot coffee to volunteers!
