Learn how to start your own backyard food forest.

One of the joys of living in Florida is year-round growing seasons for fresh produce. As grocery costs continue to rise, have you considered setting up your own backyard food forest? Not only is gardening good for your physical health, studies show it is also great for your mental health.

Learn how to get started, under the careful guidance of Melissa Goltermann, who regularly offers classes to children and adults at her not-for-profit food forest farm Momma G Farms, located in Eustis, Florida.

In this class at the Center for Health & Wellbeing, you will receive step-by-step instructions on how to plan and execute creating your own food forest in your yard, patio, or even balcony.

This program is presented by Melissa Goltermann and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.

About the Presenter:  

Melissa Goltermann started her healing journey after 10 years of being on pain management due to a serious car accident. She found the medication was only masking her symptoms and she searched for ways to heal her body. Coming off the medication was not easy, and her body is still healing. Moringa was the first thing she used to help in her healing journey. Her mission is to educate others on how plants can be a part of a healthy healing diet. She offers free classes to children and adults at her not-for-profit food forest farm Momma G Farms, located in Eustis, Florida.
