40 acre woods

The 40 acre woods is a magical place. A dark pine forest surrounding a meadow dotted with wild plums, blueberries, persimmons and oak trees.  Deer, turkeys and an occasional coyote quietly roam the shadows while noisy crows circle above the trees.

This is my homestead, my future.  I am planting the seeds and managing the natural systems for an abundant future.  I will nudge nature by creating a food forest that will sustain my family for generations to come.

The 40 acre woods website is where I share the things I am learning along the way.  Join in the discussion, ask questions, post comments, we can all learn together on how to build a better world for the next generation.
