A 2,000 year old Forest Garden!

I previously wrote about Food Forests in this post.  Today, I want to highlight one amazing example of the longevity of a well designed Permaculture system as well as give a bit more education on Food Forests in general.

Here is a video clip of Geoff Lawton, the director of The Permaculture Research Institute, describing a 2,000 year old Food Forest that is still being used today.  Fascinating!

Since I am on the topic of Food Forests, I thought I would show you another clip of Geoff Lawton showing the different stages of a Food Forest's progression (known as Food Forest Succession).
