Swale at the Urban Farm
Swale’s plant community is made up of perennial native fruit trees and shrubs and leafy self-seeding annuals. Swale utilizes permaculture and edible forestry techniques that mimic natural ecosystems and require less human maintenance over time. In 2019 visitors are welcome to explore Swale in the Urban Farm on weekends and pick from the perennial food forest for free. Swale is working towards making their space in the Urban Farm a “living sculpture” for food forestry, including color field pollinator gardens, apothecary gardens and gardens for climate change.
