Our first steps at the Embry Food Forest site were to start working to land to enable rain capture and soil development. We converted the first component of the food forest, our swale garden on the slopes of a 1 acre pacel in the heart of the community. This initial land work will be the basis of the food forest and provide a very visual experience for the residents to watch as in starts production in the spring. Below is a final view of the fodo forest swales that were build by Jamie.
We have expanded our opeation to include a large food forest in NE Atlanta. The complex sits on a very spread out 10 acre parcel of land with numerous sections for our modular garden instllation. The site plan will have swale gardens, berry patches, a pond section with walking paths and and outdoor kitchen, all available to our residents! Our first steps were to plant a hybrid apple tree with the help of our residents.
