Planting Windsor’s first ‘Food Forest’

Monday, November 5th, 2012 | Posted by | no responses

Daily Acts and the Town of Windsor partner to create Windsor’s first “Food Forest.” On Nov. 9, students from Windsor High School will plant fruit trees, berry bushes, herbs and medicine.

The students will begin planting at 8:30 am, and the general public can come by to see the Forest from noon – 3 p.m. at Robbins Park, at the intersection of Billington Lane and Dartmouth Way.

Erik Ohlsen, owner of Permaculture Artisans, a local ecological landscaping design and building company, is partnering with Daily Acts and Windsor High School’s WISE (Windsor Institute for Sustainability and the Environment).

A Food Forest is defined as a low-water, low-maintenance, perennial-based garden, filled with plants that produce food and create habitats for wildlife. Once the garden has matured, Windsor residents will be able to pick garlic, chives, apples, pears, persimmons, figs and many more.

For more information, contact Erin Axelrod, Daily Acts City Programs Coordinator, at 789-9664 or erin@dailyacts.org.
