The cost is $2500.00 per food forest installation (Donor Bench, Seed Library, Plants, Layout and Design, Labor Leader, Geocaching where possible). You can help with Volunteer labor This will not only speed the process, this will allow training of family or friends who will be able to continue on with your food forest needs, such as continued planting, harvesting, expanding.

The concept was rediscovered and described by Benjamin Franklin, in a letter to Benjamin Webb dated April 25, 1784 “I do not pretend to give such a deed; I only lend it to you. When you [...] meet with another honest Man in similar Distress, you must pay me by lending this Sum to him; enjoining him to discharge the Debt by a like operation, when he shall be able, and shall meet with another opportunity. I hope it may thus go thro' many hands, before it meets with a Knave that will stop its Progress. This is a trick of mine for doing a deal of good with a little money.”
