— Greenbelt Food Forest
— Kimberly Walsh
Establishment of a community-wide food forest in different areas of Greenbelt using permaculture strategies to promote healthy ecosystems, healthy food production, water capture and storage, building, and energy use.
A permaculture forest garden mimics the architecture and beneficial relationships of a natural forest. Food forests are not "natural" but are designed and managed ecosystems that are very rich in biodiversity and productivity. Project supported by the Chesapeake Bay Trust.
