Advance forest agriculture, so forests and people thrive together.
VIDEO: our vision for remaking the world with forest agriculture
Our 50 year vision is for forest garden ecosystems to sustainably supply a large portion of all food and forest products people need and use for healthy living. We have a special focus on the eastern United States where the Forested research garden is located. We also offer education and services with worldwide application.
