This site defines the word “University” to mean  “Unified Biodiverse Community.

A food forest is a “university” because it is a unified biodiverse community.     In a food forest, the diverse biota work together in harmony to grow food for everyone.   A food forest is a unified and very biodiverse community.

This site is entirely created and authored by Tutu Sainz, with the lessons in the eight-step path based on her opinions, words, lessons photos, and videos.  Some videos included in this course are YouTube videos from other cool permaculture teachers.   

Thanks to WordPress, LearnDash Learning Management System, WooCommerce, and Kinsta Webhosting.  I am grateful to this online community that makes it possible.  

In my opinion, Food Forest University is the most important course a person can take on the planet today, and I am delighted to be the one who is honored to make this course available to students around Earth.   


This course is an enriching elective course. Not required by law, yet useful to learn about in every way.  

This course is especially fun because it involves observing animals like lizards, bees, birds, worms, insects, and spiders; plants such as trees, bushes, flowers, fruits, roots, and fungi.     Your classwork will involve observing them, and the more you see in your food forest, the better you are doing.   Big kudos for birds singing and crickets chirping.  If you get frogs croaking, you are rocking it.  

Personally, I have always enjoyed enrolling in all kinds of schools, and the Food Forest School is my favorite so far.  Yes, you have to stretch and grow when you learn new things.  Life on Earth seems to be an unending series of lessons.

A food forest has been my teacher/classroom for the last 9 years, and I have been writing, photographing, and video recording about our food forest at,,   


This site is dedicated to hosting the online course Food Forest U to keep it lean and clean.  Only our students will be using this site once they are enrolled and logged in.  

 Why did I create this course?  

Originally, I wrote the book because I discovered the most amazing thing in the whole world!   Nature is fractally expansive and grows exponentially through multiplying exponentially.  As an accountant for over 30 years, I recognized that the return on investment from planting a seed approaches infinity and your can get your return in less than a year.   So we live in a world of infinite abundance.   

Then the 8 step path to creating a food forest came together as I organized the topics that I had blogged about since 2013 into 7 categories plus step 8, which covers the repetitive actions to take each year.

Thanks to many biodynamic gardening, organic gardening, and permaculture teachers from history and in the current time. I wouldn’t be here without you.
