Conference Session: Uncommonly Easy to Grow Fruits in the Food Forest

Food Forests are grown like a forest, not in the forest. By observing the natural patterns of a healthy forest ecosystem, we see a lot of intimate, successful relationships to learn and adapt for growing a cornucopia of fruits. Food forests are easily set up and started with a select handful of easy to grow fruits. Join permaculture and edible landscape designer Michael Judd in a clear and simplified approach to starting a food forest from scratch and growing uncommon but easy to grow fruits.
