What is a Food Forest?


A food and habitat producing landscape that acts like a natural forest. Our palette is the already beautiful Fechin House gardens.

We are growing healthy food and plants in ways that mimic the layers of the forest which will rebuild our ecosystem, help with climate change, and provide educational opportunities, while increasing equal access to food which is a benefit for all species. 

The Fechin Food Forest will have fruits, nuts, medicinal herbs, culinary herbs, beautiful flowers, fungi, and veggies all growing together in harmony. We plant to attract bees, birds, butterflies and other pollinators. 

Creating the Fechin Food Forest

Taos Art Museum @ Fechin House has joined with LGF to create the Fechin Food Forest.

Each week, on Sundays starting May 7th from 10am to 1pm we are asking the community to come together to help us create the Fechin Food Forest. There will be a workshop around that weeks activities in the food forest.  All food grow will be free to the public. We will have children's activities, coffee and pastries for sale too! Come and enjoy Sunday fun days in the Fechin Food Forest!
