Many people are interested in growing their own food, especially with the onset of the COVID 19 pandemic. Food security no longer seems as certain as it has in the past. Planting a “food forest” can ensure harvest of tree fruits, nuts, herbal medicines and berries year after year, often increasing yields as trees mature. When planted using permaculture techniques, a food forest goes far beyond a conventional orchard, helping to sustain itself with biodiversity and other protective measures. BC is an ideal place in which to grow a variety of perennial food crops and even a surprisingly small space can accommodate an abundantly producing woodland.
Sarah Orlowski is a Master Herbalist and has her Permaculture Design Certificate. She co-runs a permaculture orchard and medicinal herb farm in Grand Forks, BC, where she makes herbal remedies & trains student apprentices. Their organic farm is certified with Kootenay Mountain Grown. She has a private clinical practice, where she gives health consultations and treatments. An experienced instructor, Sarah believes that growing and living in accordance with Nature is the sustainable way of the future.
