Food Forests – FTFA’s New Programme

On the 9th of March 2018, Food & Trees for Africa, together with the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) launched their first food forest, in Evaton, near Johannesburg, to celebrate International Day of the Forests 2018. We will be returning to the project on a monthly basis, as we gradually establish the forest, which, in 3 years will produce a constant supply of food to the school and the local community.

 

“Food Forests are a key component of permaculture design, and ensure a reliable, perennial supply of food with minimal maintenance,” says Emily Jones, Trees and Carbon Manager at FTFA. “It’s remarkable to partner with beneficiaries and government to establish FTFA’s first such project. We’re excited to see how these food forests evolve in urban and peri-urban environments.”
