WHAT IS A FRUIT TREE GUILD? 

IMG_2623.jpg

 

A FRUIT TREE GUILD is a grouping of plants that support the health and abundance of a fruit tree. It’s a type of companion planting that makes the fruit tree the “centerpiece” of the design. A Fruit Tree Guild can be a standalone feature, or it can be a building block for an entire food forest landscape.

Guild plants perform multiple functions for your fruit tree:

  • Fixing nitrogen into the soil

  • Deterring pests

  • Attracting and benefiting pollinators & other garden allies

  • Suppressing weeds

  • Protecting and building new soil w/mycorrhizae (fungus that’s friendly!)
