Lunchbox Talk: Food Forests: Vertically Layered Edible Gardens, Food forests are a permaculture concept now gaining popularity as new concept for edible public gardens in the United States. One of the first developed in our state is a gorilla gardening effort started on a piece of abandoned land in the late 1990s in Asheville, NC. These designs are intended to mimic a forest ecosystem with layers of plantings from ground covers to canopy trees, with edible fruits and medicinals making up many of the species.
