Projects

Since we first found the Forest, we’ve been brainstorming ways to learn more about it, to responsibly restore damaged portions of it, and to make sustainable use of its resources.  A few of the projects we are planning to work on after we get settled are listed here.  I will add more information and links here once we have more posts in these subjects written.

Planting vegetable gardens

Taking a plant and animal “census”

Using meat goats to help get rid of some of the invasive blackberries

Planting a Food Forest near the house – perennial edibles to attract wildlife, provide income, feed future livestock and augment our annual vegetable gardens

Raising Honeybees

Making Bigleaf Maple Syrup

Growing Edible and Medicinal Mushrooms

Growing real tea – Camillia senensis (the climate and soils should be great for this!)

Augmenting the edibles in the larger forest areas (planting more evergreen huckleberries and a grove of hazelnuts, for instance)
