Picture yourself in a forest where almost everything around you is food. Fruit and nut trees form an open canopy. Food-bearing shrubs fill the gaps. Assorted native wildflowers, wild edibles, herbs, and perennial vegetables thickly cover the ground. These plants can be food or medicine, attract beneficial insects, birds, and butterflies, act as soil builders,etc. Vines climb with fruit hanging through the foliage. These plants support one another. This is an edible forest garden."
