Permaculture Lecture: Assembling a Fruit Tree Guild

Description: In Permaculture, a guild is any set of species (plants and animals) that provide bio-diversity and mutually beneficial functions when grouped together. Members of a fruit tree guild support the fruit tree in numerous ways: by attracting beneficial insects for pollination, boosting soil tilth and fertility, reducing root competition, conserving water, balancing fungal population to counter disease, diversifying the yield of food, creating habitat, and several other functions. The result is a healthier tree and a varied ecology.

This lecture will demonstrate which plants to choose, the function of particular plants, and what patterns to use when planting around the fruit tree.
