Join us from 9 am-1 pm May 6 for the annual Demonstration Food Forest Garden Tour in Fairfield and Suisun. Visit waterwise, edible gardens and take home ideas for your own home and community!
Have you ever seen a food forest? Are you interested in growing your own food or want to replace your lawn with a more sustainable landscape? Join our annual demo Food Forest Tour! Do not miss out on the chance to tour our demonstration edible gardens fed by secondary water (roofwater and/or laundry-to-landscape greywater system) in Fairfield & Suisun City!
Learn simple techniques that you can apply to your own yard to create a vibrant, food-producing ecosystem using water wisely.
Each food forest is a unique expression of the land and caretaker. Ask our food forest keepers questions, enjoy the gardens, be inspired and get ideas on how you can work these design principles into your own yard!
