Create your own Food Forest anywhere in USDA Climate zone 8! Inspired by Dave Jacke's Edible Forest Gardens but narrowing it down to USDA zone 8, A Georgia Food Forest is a permaculture-oriented illustrated guide for planning your own food forest of perennial fruit, nut and berry vines, bushes, trees, vegetables and herbs that work in USDA climate zone 8. The 128-page book includes descriptions of 180 perennial food-bearing trees and plants (along with the authors own black-and-white drawings to help you recognize many of them) and additional herbs, along with recommended varieties from the authors own personal experience planting and growing as well as tapping into other information from experts/grower/gardeners in this climate zone. Recommended zone 8 Varieties, typical yield and size, lifespan, special planting and care needs, how pollinated, etc. are included for major plants. Besides the plant variety detail, the author also provides a guide for how to plan your own food forest, taking into account irrigation, layout (crown diameters, mowing, shade, etc), access for vehicles, etc.and also includes drawings of designs of a couple of local food forests with a process for laying out the design by layers using easily-available materials.
