Farming the Woods

An Integrated Permaculture Approach to Growing Food and Medicinals in Temperate Forests

by Ken Mudge, Steve Gabriel

Foreword by John F. Munsell

Praise

"At last, a comprehensive forest farming guide for cool temperate climates! The authors have done a superb job explaining forest ecology and describing how to integrate fruits, nuts, mushrooms, medicinals, animals, and more into forest systems. A must-read for anyone interested in agroforestry, forest gardening, or utilizing forests for specialty crops."

Martin Crawford, author of Creating a Forest Garden


"My particular focus of research is in mushrooms, and Farming the Woods not only offers detailed methodology and techniques for woodland mushroom cultivation, but also adds insight on scheduling and calendars to help orchestrate yields in seasonal climates. I have always wanted to find this information on forest farming bundled together into a collaborative matrix with nut, berry, and rhizome production, and this book helps bridge sustainable agriculture and a healthy, circular systems approach. The authors urge us to take advantage of forested acreage we may have thought was unusable. Fill your forests with food!"

Tradd Cotter, author of Organic Mushroom Farming and Mycoremediation


"What a joy to read! Nice pictures, great case studies, and well organized. I can tell the authors put their heart and soul into this book. Farming the Woods is the source for temperate climate agroforestry, particularly for Northeast permaculture designers and teachers."

Jonathan Bates, owner of Food Forest Farm and contributing author of Paradise Lot
