Grow a Food Forest in Kentucky
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.
Following are some options for your Kentucky food forest. All of these plants are routinely available in areas where they thrive.
