A food forest is a multi-layered composition of food producing plant species. Implemented properly, a food forest is a low maintenance garden that combines trees, shrubs and ground plants to produce useful and edible food like fruits, seeds, nuts and herbs.
This is a great way to eat more organic food in your daily life.
A food forest is a permaculture design element consisting of seven layers from the canopy and shrubs on down past the soil layer.
