    Since we moved in the last year to forested property it was interesting and useful for me to read about forests that provide a lot of different types of food and how one might start The concept of forest garden takes this one step further providing also lots of other useful things as well as a complete ecosystem for all sorts of life that happen to dwell in it It is a bit long on detailed information but contains practical recommendations What I liked best is that I can open it up find what I need read the essentials and have a good summary understanding of certain aspects of forest gardening in a very short time

    This book is of a philosophical treatise than a how to manual for forest gardening Forest gardening attempts to replicate the symbiotic relationships that naturally occur in a forest when planning a garden that produces food and other goods for human consumption Although I don't agree with all of the ideas that the author proposes veganism etc it does have some interesting ideas about fighting world hunger and restoring human dignity to our work It is worth a read and I may revisit it at some point in the future

    There's a lot of good information in this book The first few chapters talk about the author's personal forest garden and then much of the rest of the book is information about forest gardening in different cultures around the world I would have liked to have had details on designing a working system but what is here is a very good overview and introduction

    It seems that the author is both a practical gardener and a world leader of an agricultural movement the book is mixed from viewpoints of both roles of the author with far philosophy historical recount culturepersonality survey future predictions than actual how to guide unfortunately to me as I'm seeking for the latter
