Starting A Food Forest - Growing For A Long Term Food Supply

Hello!  Do you have a block of grass land that does not have much value and you don't know what to do with it?  Have you ever thought of starting a permanent, food forest for a long term food supply?

Growing a food forest by using permaculture principles, is gaining interest in all over the world.

What is a food forest in permaculture?

Basically it is about designing a food forest by mimicking a natural forest ecosystem.  It produces food without too much human intervention when it's established.

There is no need for artificial fertilizers, pesticides and only little watering.  As long as the soil is looked after, it will look after plants that are growing in it. 

So how to start a food forest? Here's a great video on starting a fruit forest from Frank Gapinski and Geoff Lawton.
