7 Food Forests in 7 Minutes with Geoff Lawton
Food forests are at the heart of Permaculture and fast becoming a hot topic in many areas of debate as people realise the their full potential.
Let’s face it, with our all consuming global problems, there aren’t many natural solutions out there that can halt & reverse deforestation, stabilise the climate by returning carbon to the soil where it belongs, solve poverty & extreme hunger all in one hit are there?
Yet this is exactly what the food forest is capable of, and provided people understand it and are at the centre of the system, they can go on living off that land forever.
Here is a video of Geoff Lawton showing a series of food forests that have been planted at Zaytuna farm over successive years.

The Permaculture Research Institute of Australia also sells a full 90 minute DVD featuring Geoff Lawton as he demonstrates how to grow a food forest from start to finish.
