Sponsor a Tree in Bellview Food Forest

Bellview Grange 759* – Ashland, Oregon, USA

For over a hundred years, Bellview Elementary School and the Bellview Grange have been neighbors. In the fall of 2021, the fifth-grade class at Bellview Elementary, members of the Bellview Grange, and farmer Chris Hardy of Hardy Seeds, began working together to start a demonstration food forest.

Together, on a quarter-acre plot that sits between the school and the Grange community center, permaculture and regenerative agriculture planting skills are being implemented.

These techniques promote the conservation of water, the positive adaptation of seeds for the changing climate, the growth of living soil, and the planting of a 7-layer forest canopy. Every inch of this “multi-strata” garden is covered with edible food plants, shrubs, and trees.

This shows how a small piece of land, formerly a parking lot, can be used to sequester carbon, create food system diversity, and provide nutritious locally grown food. The forest is being planted with drought tolerant, local, non-commercial, heirloom species.
