About Chicken

Ground beef is great in tacos, pasta sauces and meatballs, but it can be high in fat for everyday eating. Try replacing it with organic ground chicken in your favorite recipes for a lighter meal. You can even do a mixture of the two meats.

Growing Your Own Connecticut 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 Connecticut, here are some examples of routinely available plants available at a garden center near you.

Propogated by Bare root, Container, Cuttings, Seed, the common persimmon enjoys a bloom period in Late Spring. the fruit/seed period runs from Summer to Winter.

A member of the Ebony family, the common name for Diospyros virginiana is common persimmon. Requiring a minimum temperature of -21°F, it has a Medium tolerance of drought.

Native to CT, the common persimmon is common in food forests. It grows in areas with a minimum of 30 inches of annual rainfall.

You may live in a micro-climate or area of Connecticut 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!
