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.

A member of the Rose family, the common name for Cydonia oblonga is quince. Requiring a minimum temperature of -23°F, it has a Low tolerance of drought.

Introduced to CT, the quince is common in food forests. It grows in areas with a minimum of 24 inches of annual rainfall.

Propogated by Bare root, Container, Cuttings, Seed, the quince enjoys a bloom period in Spring. the fruit/seed period runs from Summer to Fall.

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!
