What is a food forest

The food forest abc

    Food forest, the forest that didn't want to be a forest.

    From food forest to Yummy Jungle's or edible gardens, ..what's in a name? You have them in all shapes and sizes. But several layers of edible perennials, trees, shrubs, climbers, ground covers is the foundation.

    Food agroforestry or agroforestry.

    Or a little bit of everything and nothing but food production is the focus. Arable farming/vegetable farming, woody crops and trees go hand in hand with animal farming.
