When you arrive on my property drive in the driveway and park to the left, there is enough parking for 6 cars, you will be given a 10 minute tour of the 1/2 acre food forest garden. Then you can: walk the property, pick fruit, harvest herbs, mediate, relax, enjoy the butterflies, bunnies, birds or hold a chicken.
I'm a computer guy that for the last 20 years has been a back yard gardener. For the last 10 years I've been building a food forest garden on my property using permaculture design. I have created an amazing permaculture learning center that is a great place for kids and parents to relax, pick some fruit and mediate.
The food forest has 16 fruit trees, 12 chickens, countless herbs and multiple garden beds. Our food forest is a sacred space we use no pesticides or chemicals. It is a safe quiet sanctuary; A great place to unwind from the hectic world around us...
This was such a nice and relaxing experience. Jeff's garden is just teeming with all kinds of plants, and the chickens are BEAUTIFUL. It's a lovely way to spend an hour or so if you're in the area. I've been researching permaculture, having had some experience with it in the past. Hearing about how Jeff has made his backyard into a fully functioning holistic system was just so inspiring...plus, he let me take some fruits, vegetables, and herbs! (Also, do NOT leave without smelling the scented geranium.) I'm planning on bringing my significant other and some friends at some point.

Please wear shoes. There are chickens so there is the occasional chicken dropping. Fruit differs depending on the time of year! Spring and summer are best!
