The Awbury Food Forest is a permaculture planting that creates habitat and grows edible and medicinal resources in a sustainable way. Awbury Food Forest Stewards and POP work together every 2nd Saturday and 4th Sunday of the month to maintain all aspects of the Food Forest. Volunteers will get their hands dirty engaging in a variety of tasks including but not limited to weeding, fruit tree and berry pruning, path making, sheet mulching and planting. Come volunteer your time and learn about unique gardening techniques, woody and perennial edible and medicinal plants, and their care throughout the season.
