Filbelly Forest (formerly Dragon's Eye Nursery) is an incredible 3 acres just outside of Grand Forks, BC. Here hundreds of trees, shrubs and plants show the potential of what perennial agriculture can offer.
Following the site through a season as well as the people who manage and made this forest will be a delight. Who doesn't love being in the garden with its sights and sounds?
The plants and animals of Filbelly Forest are the real MVPs. Cultivated from around the world they show what's possible when working with nature instead of against it.
