After four frustrating years of renting, I am now planting my third food forest. My first one was planted in North Florida, followed by a simultaneous food forest project in suburban South Florida.
Both of those projects are still thriving, almost 10 years in. My new project is in the equatorial tropics and was started on July 20, 2019.
Fortunately, trees grow very fast here.
Along with planting my own food forests, I’ve helped many other people get started on their own. Some are big, multi-acre projects; others are tiny backyard plots. Some are regimented and orchard-like, others are free-flowing, messy extravaganzas.
Whatever your personality, if you have a little space of your own, you can plant a food forest.

I stumbled upon your site on Pinterest where I was researching for my new project. I currently live in Canada but bought a 5ac land in Belize.
I’m hoping to go there as soon as possible and start a Food Forrest of my own. Hope to pick your brain a bit. Where is your new tropical food Forrest? How do you source out your plants? How do you amend the soil?
I have 1000 questions, hope you can help.
