(Article has been updated with correct date—we made a mistake!)

Tomorrow, May 4 at 6:30 p.m., the Friends of the Beacon Food Forest are hosting a free screening of Geoff Lawton’s film Establishing a Food Forest.

In the film, Lawton explains the fundamentals of food forestry and then goes outdoors to show examples of active food forests at various stages in their existence. You can read a review here.

The screening is at the Washington Federation of Garden Clubs Headquarters House (the Garden House for short), at 2336 15th Ave. S. Food and drink will be provided.

Here is a trailer for the film:

  1. I never would have guessed there’s precedent for this. The movie looks interesting.

  2. Dear Readers,
    This film depicts several very wild food forests on private lands in a subtropical zone. The wild aesthetic shown is one way of doing a food forest but is not the only way. For the Beacon Food Forest, which is on public land we will have to adjust our aesthetic to suit the needs and wants of the public. Even in our temperate zone (your back yard) we can find many similar functioning plants to create a beautiful and productive eco-systemic forest garden.
