The Beacon Food Forest and a Utopian Vision

Tour a 7-acre edible food forest with permaculture designer Jackie Cramer.

The Beacon Food Forest is a community-driven 7-acre food forest within Seattle city limits that mimics a woodland ecosystem using edible trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals. As the first large-scale edible permaculture garden on public land, the project has captured national attention for its design and philosophy. Join Beacon Food Forest co-founder Jacqueline Cramer for a 1.5-hour tour that will explore the origins of the food forest, permaculture design and a utopian vision for self-sustaining landscapes and settlements that build ecological knowledge and skills in communities.
