Enabling individuals to connect with place and one another, the Woolley Food Forest will nourish both mind and body, address isolation, and empower our community to share skills and food. The WFF volunteer management program will train volunteers to properly maintain and harvest for the food bank, while keeping a portion for themselves. Additionally, our program will improve livelihoods through job and self-reliance training in volunteer management, permaculture, agro-forestry, perennial gardening, food processing/preserving, and data collection. Data collection volunteers will track inputs, yields, successes, and failures to prove the feasibility of perennial, tree-based agriculture.
The WFF project’s work and research in urban food production and environmental understanding will trigger systemic changes, empowering individuals and community to evolve from surviving to thriving.
