Growing Your Own Iowa Food Forest
A food forest uses available garden space to combine food producing plant species. This multi-layer composition can be low-maintenance, combining trees, shrubs and ground cover in order to produce edible foods including herbs, fruits, seeds and nuts.
This is ideal to increase the amount of organic food in your diet.
An element of permaculture design, the food forest includes seven layers from the canopy down through the rhizosphere.
In Iowa, here are some examples of routinely available plants available at a garden center near you.
A member of the Oleaster family, the common name for Elaeagnus angustifolia is Russian olive. Requiring a minimum temperature of -38°F, it has a High tolerance of drought.
