Food Forests and Forest Gardens

The forest garden is the ultimate, perennial Permaculture system.

High-yielding planting regimes, food forests and gardens use perennials that need not be planted each year. They produce a larger percentage of biomass (per acre?) than conventional farms and gardens, and, by design, are diverse and complex ecosystems. Forest gardens have the capacity to restore health and balance to the landscape.

We look for opportunities to develop and design this abundant and beautiful system by integrating it into your pre-existing landscape.

Wayne Weiseman of The Permaculture Project LLC has written an in-depth manual of forest gardening and plant guilds, published in 2014 by Chelsea Green Publishers, Integrated Forest Gardening.
