Lakeside Community Garden Edible Forest
Description: Lakeside Food Forest is a regenerative urban forest garden which welcomes everyone in the community to have fun learning, growing, planting, eating and harvesting together. Instead of annual crops, we're growing a forest - the type of ecosystem native to most of our region.
Our guiding concept for planting design is a guild - a carefully selected community of species designed to support a fruit or nut tree. In fall 2019 we broke ground, planting 11 apple trees, 2 plums, 2 pears, 2 sour cherries and over 30 shrubs. Over the next few years we'll plant the supporting guild species and extend our ecosystem habitats to include a nut grove, eddow (edible meadow) and a wildlife hedgerow bursting with nuts and berries. We host monthly workbees, potlucks and a workshop series so please join us!
