About Forest Gardens

Forest Gardening is a low-maintenance sustainable plant-based food production and agroforestry system based on woodland ecosystems, incorporating fruit and nut trees, shrubs, herbs, vines and perennial vegetables which have yields directly useful to humans. Making use of companion planting, these can be intermixed to grow in a succession of layers, to build a woodland habitat. More from Wikipedia.

The scale of a Forest Garden can range from a small residential lot to a large farm. It can take the form of just a few plants, carefully nurtured, or acres of carefully planned, but minimally tended plants.

Some further resources are available here.
