Healthy forests maintain, fertilize, and renew themselves, naturally. Wouldn?t
you like to grow an abundant food-producing ecosystem like this in your back yard?
You can! Edible forest gardens mimic the structure and function of natural forests
through all their stages of development and grow food, fuel, fiber, fodder, fertilizers,
farmaceuticals, and fun. We can meet our own needs and regenerate healthy
ecosystems at the same time! This talk introduces the vision of forest gardening with
some scientific background, a few living examples, and a sampling of some useful
perennial edibles you can use in your own garden.
