The Food Forest

Welcome... the Food Forest!

The Food Forest is a 15 hectare property in Gawler where we grow over 160 varieties of fruit, nuts, grains, vegetables and timber. If you haven't already tasted any of our goodies, come along and see us every second week at the Adelaide Showground Farmers Market. You can also buy a selection of our products online.

We offer a consultancy service, run courses on permaculture, building with strawbales, fruit & nut production, sustainable house design and more. Coming along for a tour or one of our twice-yearly open days is a great way to get a taste of what we're all about
