Look no further than permaculture food forests! These ecosystems mimic natural forests and are designed to be self-sustaining, low-maintenance, and highly productive. Here are ten foods that you can grow in your own food forest:

Leafy greens (such as kale, spinach, and collard greens)
Cruciferous vegetables (such as broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts)
Berries (such as blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries)
Nuts and seeds (such as almonds, walnuts, and chia seeds)
Fatty fish (such as salmon, tuna, and sardines)
Sweet potatoes
Legumes (such as lentils, chickpeas, and black beans)
Whole grains (such as quinoa, brown rice, and whole wheat bread)
Herbs and spices (such as turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon)

But how do you grow or source these foods? That’s where permaculture food forest courses come in. I developed a course to teach you how to design, plant, and maintain your own food forest, no matter where you live. You’ll learn about companion planting, guilds, and other techniques that maximize productivity and minimize maintenance. And best of all, you’ll be part of a community of like-minded individuals who share your passion for sustainable living. If you’re not convinced yet, consider the benefits of permaculture food forests. They:

Provide fresh, healthy food for you and your family
Reduce your carbon footprint by eliminating the need for long-distance transportation
Promote biodiversity and support local ecosystems
Save you money in the long run by reducing your grocery and even power bills
Create a beautiful and peaceful environment that you can enjoy year-round
