EDIBLE FOREST GARDENS
Edible Forest Gardens
Edible Forest Gardens or Food Forests incorporate permaculture principles and mimic woodland ecosystems using edible trees, shrubs, and other perennials. Fruit and nut trees make up the upper level, while berry shrubs and (mainly) edible perennials make up the lower levels. Once established, the gardens are relatively low maintenance and require no watering after the first year.
In 2017 and 2018, volunteers led by Sudbury Shared Harvest began establishing the Delki Dozzi Community Food Forest and since then we have worked with many more groups and individuals to establish a number of much smaller gardens across the city.
We hope to eventually facilitate at least one of these gardens on public properties in each of Sudbury's voting wards, with locations depend on various factors, including demonstrated commitment to long-term maintenance by people who live in the neighbourhood. If you live in Ward 5, 7, or 11 and you want to help make one happen in your neighbourhood, please get in touch with us: info (at) sudburysharedharvest.ca
