Check Out This 20-Year-Old Permaculture Forest Garden In The Mountains


The garden at Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute is truly something pretty incredible to behold. It was designed by Jerome Osentowski more than 20 years ago. The food forest is a well-established 1 acre polyculture garden that features fruit trees, perennial and annual vegetables, many of which reseed themselves, as well as nitrogen fixing shrubs to maintain soil fertility.

Pretty neat, huh?

This whole setup is pretty impressive overall. I dream of setting up something like this myself. The benefit here is that the food forest is mostly self-sustaining. It would be incredible to be able to leave something behind after I’m gone that would continue to feed hungry people. Lord knows we have enough hungry people.
