Your Kentucky Food Forest
Your garden can supply an abundance of food – seeds, nuts, fruits and more compromise a “food forest”. A food forest is a multi-layered composition of food-producing plants. It is ideally low-maintenance and produces a wealth of edibles.
Want to eat more organic food? A food forest is a great way to do that.
Permaculture design identifies seven layers in a food forest, from the tallest trees in the canopy continuing down below the soil layer.
There are many varieties of plants that are routinely available in Kentucky garden centers, including a few examples below.
Surviving in temperatures above -18°F, the muscadine is in the Grape family. It’s scientific name is Vitis rotundifolia, and it has a Medium drought tolerance.
The muscadine requires between 35 and 55 inches of rain per annum. It is Native to KY.
The muscadine has a Late Spring bloom period. Propogated by Bare root, Container, Cuttings, Seed, the fruit/seed period of the muscadine lasts from Summer to Fall.
While a plant may be listed as fruit-bearing in Kentucky, you might not have the best growing conditions in your specific area.
Talking to your local garden supplier is a great way to learn more about the plants, shrubs and ground species that will be the perfect fit for your new food forest.
