The Woolley Food Forest Association (“WFFA”) is a group formed to design, establish and manage to maturity, and in perpetuity, food forest/edible landscapes, applying permaculture principles, with the goal of educating our community about the feasibility and desirability of tree-based edible perennial landscapes within our Skagit Valley ecosystem. WFFA is a 501(c) non-profit corporation.
At the moment, WFFA is working in partnership with Helping Hands Food Bank ("HHFB") to establish a demonstration food forest at the new HHFB facility on Fruitdale Road, to be experienced, maintained and used by HHFB's customers and volunteers. We welcome both experienced permaculturalists and those interested in learning to join us.
“What permaculturists are doing is the most important activity that any group is doing on the planet. We don’t know what details of a truly sustainable future are going to be like, but we need options, we need people experimenting in all kinds of ways and permaculturists are one of the critical gangs that are doing that.” - Dr David Suzuki, Geneticist, Broadcaster and International Environmental Advocate
