About Birdseed

If you plan to feed organic bird seed to birds in the wild, keep your feeder cleaner. Feeders are often full of pesticides so you won’t get all of the benefits of an organic seed if you have a dirty bird feeder. Wash it before each feeding for the best results.

Growing Your Own British Columbia Food Forest

A food forest uses available garden space to combine food producing plant species. This multi-layer composition can be low-maintenance, combining trees, shrubs and ground cover in order to produce edible foods including herbs, fruits, seeds and nuts.

This is ideal to increase the amount of organic food in your diet.

An element of permaculture design, the food forest includes seven layers from the canopy down through the rhizosphere.

In British Columbia, here are some examples of routinely available plants available at a garden center near you.

A member of the Heath family, the common name for Vaccinium corymbosum is highbush blueberry. Requiring a minimum temperature of -33°F, it has a Low tolerance of drought.

Propogated by Bare root, Container, Cuttings, Seed, the highbush blueberry enjoys a bloom period in Early Summer. the fruit/seed period runs from Summer to Summer.

Native to BC, the highbush blueberry is common in food forests. It grows in areas with a minimum of 32 inches of annual rainfall.

You may live in a micro-climate or area of British Columbia where some species don’t thrive or fruit.

Be sure to consult your neighborhood garden supply store and read more online to find the plants, shrubs and ground cover that work for your food forest.

Want to be featured on our site? Submit a photo of your food forest and tell us what you’re growing!
