The interpretive signs created by MDML will explain permaculture practices and principles through illustration and an introduction to ecology. The signs will relay to Food Forest visitors the interconnectedness of all things. The signs will be up in late summer 2013!
The Beacon Hill community is creating 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, for education and recreation in Jefferson Park in South Seattle.
The Food Forest includes an Edible Arboretum with fruits gathered from regions around the world, a Berry Patch for canning, gleaning and the joy of eating right off the bush, a Nut Grove with tress that provide both shade and sustenance, a Community Garden using Seattle’s P-Patch model where families can grow their own food, and a Kids Area.
