I'm working on a few community food forest projects/sites at the planning stage now ourselves but I wanted to share what we are looking to do which is to source as much as possible from community donations. We are calling out for perennial herbs, vegetables, berries, and fruit and nut trees from the local community including cuttings we can propagate from. You might also try a donation letter to local nurseries. We are very specifically asking for drought tolerant species as well as species particularly suited/thriving in our local environment. There is also the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation I've looked into a little bit. Good luck!

Don't limit yourself. Make a list of what you want to plant and go to people and tell them your story. They will support you.

Join a garden club. Most established gardens need constant thinning and the owners work with newcomers. Call demolition contractors. When sites are cleared, complete gardens are usually removed.

Lily, I have what you need, but I live on the Idaho border.
Do you have the ability to start from cuttings or are you in need of starts?
