Big Foot Letters
We call our blog posts letters because they started out as letters to friends and family to tell them about what we were doing, dreaming, thinking about as the Big Foot Food Forest came alive and grew. They continue to be on a wide-ranging set of topics, from ruminations about the COVID year, to learning to manage a flock of sheep without any livestock experience, to how to set up taught wires on a trellis. We hope that by sharing our stories, others can learn from what we did and are doing - including our many mistakes!

At Big Foot Food Forest, we seek to have the biggest healing footprint possible on the Earth. By building a food forest that mimics natural ecosystems, we want to improve soils and wildlife habitats, sequester carbon back into the soil, and harvest lots of yummy food - fruits, nuts, mushrooms, eggs, herbs and some grains are all in the works! Through the use of permaculture processes, we also aim to learn and grow from the land as people. As the Japanese farmer and philosopher Masanobu Fukuoka wrote, "The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings."
