Boring Lawn to Edible Food Forest

Boring Lawn to Edible Food Forest

Imagine if you could grow food in the same way that a forest grows: multiple layers, no mowing, weeding or spraying required.

“Many people in the general public are unaware of the plethora of great perennial food crops we can grow here on the West Coast: figs, chestnuts, mulberries, seabuckthorn, gojis, apples, peaches, pears, grapes, tea-plants…and many more. These are just some of my favorites.

A food forest is a method of planting of all these crops together in a way that they work
together to create a healthy, organic, cultivated, edible ecosystem! We are trying to replicate natural forests and savannah shrub-lands in structure and in function.”

Excerpted from: A No-Non-Sense Guide to Establishing Permaculture Food Forests on Boring Lawns, By Tayler Krawczyk
