Permaculture Books: Forest Gardening

Forest Gardening: Cultivating an Edible Landscape
The book that started it all... Robert Hart was an elderly man from the UK who first attempted a temperate climate forest garden. This is his book. While not the best book on the subject, it is still a very interesting and educational read.

How to Make a Forest Garden
This is the book that got me really interested in Permaculture. This is a fantastic introduction to forest gardening.

Creating a Forest Garden: Working with Nature to Grow Edible Crops
This is the most recent and most approachable "bible" on forest gardening. It has received nothing but praise from every reader I have spoken to about it.

Edible Forest Gardens (2 volume set)
This two book set is truly the most exhaustive book(s) on the subject of forest gardening. Extremely well written and illustrated. If you want to dive in to the why and how of forest gardening, then these books are for you. Highly recommended.
