    1. 1. Golden Gate Park: Kezar Triangle
    2. 2. Kezar Food Forest <ul><li>Intro </li></ul><ul><li>Vision/Goals </li></ul><ul><li>Site Analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Kezar Food Forest Design </li></ul><ul><li>Methods of Implementation </li></ul><ul><li>Management </li></ul><ul><li>Summary </li></ul>
    3. 3. Vision & Goals: Overview <ul><li>We have designed a two-acre food forest for an underutilized area of Golden Gate Park. </li></ul><ul><li>The forests and meadows will have the look and feel of a park, while the trees and plants themselves serve multiple functions such as providing fruits, nuts, medicinal plants, teas, berries, leafy greens, edible roots and bulbs. </li></ul><ul><li>All the plant guilds are designed into our scheme. We saw that the original Park owed its successes to the many Permaculture Principles that its’ founders applied. </li></ul><ul><li>We will show you these innovations used particularly by William Hammond Hall, the designer and first superintendent of the Park. </li></ul>
    4. 4. Vision & Goals: Historical Precedence <ul><li>Our support for the vision of the Park as a valuable resource is also historical. During times of financial depression and the 1906 earthquake and fire, the Park was an invaluable resource to the people of San Francisco. </li></ul><ul><li>Creative schemes were used to hire the unemployed who built the bridges and roads and plant trees in the Park. Meadows became tent cities. Children attended outside schools and tended the many vegetable gardens. </li></ul>
    5. 5. History: Tent Cities
    6. 6. Vision & Goals: Building Community <ul><li>Today it is estimated that 1,500 people live within the park. The City’s lack of resources for the homeless and mentally ill are putting a huge strain on the Park. </li></ul><ul><li>We see our sample food forest not as a way to attract more homeless and unemployed but as a way for more citizens to get involved in creative solutions that could ease and eliminate this poverty and lack of care. </li></ul><ul><li>To such an end, we have suggested a mobile produce market and food exchanges. Our experimental model could be applied to many other places in the Park as well as empty lots in neighborhoods and smaller parks in the City. </li></ul>
    7. 7. Resource: Homeless in the Park
    8. 8. Site for Farmer’s Market Off Stanyan
    9. 9. Vision & Goals: Wildlife Habitats <ul><li>Our choice of a food forest is also a way to restore wildlife. Food and habitats will attract birds, bats, small rodents, gopher snakes (right now gophers have a monopoly), butterflies, and bees. </li></ul><ul><li>Wildlife corridors are becoming recognized more and more as valuable resources to all communities. </li></ul>
    10. 10. Vision & Goals: Wildlife Habitats
    11. 11. Vision & Goals: Utilize Permaculture Principles to Lower Costs & Reduce Maintenance <ul><li>We have designed a forest garden that will develop over time; from pioneer plant communities to more diverse and stable communities. </li></ul><ul><li>By mimicking complex forest ecosystems, we learn how to rebuild self-maintaining landscapes. Wild ecosystems contain webs of cooperation and interdependence. </li></ul><ul><li>The goal of forest garden design is to generate such self-maintaining, networked ecosystems. </li></ul>
