Name of food forest

The Happy Bee Forest


The Happy Bees Forest is a food forest in the making. Right now it is an approximately 50-year-old deciduous forest with a pool in it. So the canopy is there, there are very large cherry trees I am told, there are blackberries galore and we have found walnuts on the ground, but not the walnut tree yet. My husband and I bought this forest October 2022 and are now building trails and a 1st thinning of the barely unmaintained forest. The enthusiasm and motivation to transform it into a food forest is great, our knowledge and skill, however, still limited, so for now it remains with this brief description.
