Your garden can supply an abundance of food – seeds, nuts, fruits and more compromise a “food forest”. A food forest is a multi-layered composition of food-producing plants. It is ideally low-maintenance and produces a wealth of edibles.

Permaculture design identifies seven layers in a food forest, from the tallest trees in the canopy continuing down below the soil layer.
There are many varieties of plants that are routinely available in Louisiana garden centers, including a few examples below.
