A food forest is a self-managed climate resilient multi-layered living ecosystem with the purpose of growing food by mimicking local natural forest. These types of forests are designed with seven different layers, as opposed to the 1-2 layer found in a conventional farm.
Conventional farming practices have three main challenges: (a) Soil fertility decreases, (b) High labour or energy intensive costs and (c) High water consumption.
Due to these three problems, land custodian net income is reduced.
It doesn’t have to be this way. An edible forest increases net income by making the land self-managed, low water consuming and regenerate soil fertility every year.
