Food Forest

One of the projects that we plan to grow is a food forest.  This food forest will be strategically planted perennial food sources that will be spread throughout the lot and could potentially feed my family for generations to come.  And feed us through retirement so we don’t have to break our backs until we are 100 years old just to eat.
