VIDEO: Food Forest Tour

In this video on the Symbiosis YouTube channel, Mike Wolfert takes us on a brief food forest tour of a Central Texas homestead. This food forest includes 5 berms and swales on contour with tons of fruit trees, pollinator plants, herbs, medicinals, and more.

Some of the plants included in this post oak savannah food forest are:

  • asparagus
  • rosemary
  • apple
  • pear
  • plumb
  • pomegranite
  • jujube
  • loquat
  • mulberry
  • crepe myrtle
  • oak
  • pine

A Pioneer 30,000 gallon rainwater tank catches water off of the house and irrigates the food forest when rain is sparse. At the bottom of the berm and swale system is a constructed stream bed and french drain that diverts water during heavy rain events away from the house preventing erosion and flood damage.
