    Does this still work on a smaller scale? For example, having trees of less than 30ft as the upper canopy and working downwards? In a small garden a taller tree would be impractical, but could the principle still be applied?

    This video was great! It really broke it down and helped me really be more clear on my vision and how to implement! thanks!

  • Lorraine Ciccarelli says:

    lol I love James. He’s great! He taught me how to harden off my tomatoes!

  • Amanda Koza says:

    Is it considered a food forest if I want to keep the existing natural forest and just use some of the edges for food? I don’t want to loose the plants that grow naturally like the raspberries and wild strawberries or small of the smaller plants that I know have different uses even if I am not sure how to use them myself.

    • Bret James says:

      Well, technically a food forest is a garden designed like a forest and forest gardening is gardening within an existing forest, slightly confusing terms with similar goals. But the line is blurred too – you can design a food forest that transitions into a native forest even…

    love the layer template! I have been gathering a list of tropical trees, shrubs etc. that I plan to grow and organizing them in this manner will make decisions easier.
