The goal of the Beacon Hill Food Forest is to bring this richly diverse community together in fostering a Permaculture Tree Guild approach to urban farming and land stewardship. The design of this seven-acre site provides opportunities for cultural exchange and understanding, education and recreation. The simple act of planting a garden can make real and lasting change to improve food access and healthy lifestyles.
Aspect of Pride
Work parties resulted in 50,000 sf of sheet mulching, irrigation, urbanite wall building and planting of over 500 trees, shrubs and perennials.
The project has received national and international attention as a story of community pride, innovation and inspiration.
