    Integrated Forest Gardening

    The Complete Guide to Polycultures and Plant Guilds in Permaculture Systems

    One of the essential practices of permaculture is to develop perennial agricultural systems that thrive over several decades without expensive and harmful inputs. Integrated Forest Gardening is the first, and most comprehensive, guide about plant guilds ever written, and covers in detail both what guilds are and how to design and construct them. This book will benefit all readers interested in permaculture, from permaculture designers and professional growers, to backyard growers new to the concept.
