Map

The map is under constant construction. I try to keep updating the map with new sites, adding resources links to existing sites, and hopefully adding some photos. Check back often to see the progression. 

Please self-report any community food forest initiatives that you know of or are a part of by filling out this form.

  1. Terrific work! One question: How current is it?

    • I think the last one added was probably in June. I should go back through it sometime soon and do updates, but, as you may be able to tell from the posts- I have not had much time to keep this up right now. Primarily because I spent most of my summer….visiting food forests. This is my PhD research, so it started in 2013 and will continue until next June for sure. After that I’ll be turning the information into a book for Chelsea Green, although, as it seems you noticed, my fundraiser for that campaign did not complete. By the end of October, I will have visited 25 sites. I’ve only read through the first part of your blog post, but I’ll certainly look into it more as soon as possible to see your take on something that is clearly growing in popularity. Apart from Village Homes designed/planted in the 70s and Asheville in ’97, you may note that the first of these started popping up around 2008. While there is more than one reason for that, a contributing trigger was the recession, and as history has taught us,that will always trigger people to start thinking about how to grow their own food again. This time it happened with a twist on the traditional band-aid of community gardens from the past. Thanks for noticing the work, I keep-up the Facebook page much more often if you’re interested in resources related to this topic.
