The SourceForest

Community Permaculture Gardens

Participate, Contribute, Play, Learn, Teach

The Source Forest is an open care/open share collaborative herb and food garden where we work and learn together to grow rich soil, nutritious food, medicinal herbs and a diversity of plant and animal habitats.  Our gardens are modeled after Permaculture Principles and incorporate the wisdom of the abundant life of the forest.


There are no upcoming events at this time.

Our intent is to co-create a growing community of sharing and learning and the opportunity to participate at any level and in any area of interest, whether new to gardening or a long time enthusiast.  We all share our efforts, knowledge and experience in observing, soil cultivation, planting and harvesting, tending, seed saving, water harvesting, maintaining sprinkler systems, directing activities or teaching classes.

We invite master gardeners and groups who would like to utilize the space for educational and/or work-service projects. Everyone is welcome to volunteer once or participate as a full-fledged community gardener.

Eric Garretston, proprietor of New Mexico Foodscapes, an edible landscaping company, shares his knowledge about a variety of subjects including: wild edible weeds, landscaping with native medicinals, fruit trees, guilds, murder in the garden, what to do with unruly non-natives, extending your season with cool weather crops, beneficial insects, irrigation, mulches, soils, composting and seed saving. abqsource
