Food forests

Food Forests represent man-made food-producing ecosystems, which utilise vertical integration of mostly woody perennial plants sharing a common canopy.

Food forests

This allows the purposeful utilisation of three-dimensional space above and below ground. In temperate zones the sharing of light and root-space has to be carefully managed to retain productive elements.

Trees both dominant and sub-dominant will produce the taller tiers of canopy, shrubs, climbers and perennials share the lower strata, while annuals and ground cover species will provide living ground cover, where conditions allow.
