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 New Jersey 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 New Jersey, here are some examples of routinely available plants available at a garden center near you.

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

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.

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