This is another model of urban agriculture. In essence, a ‘food forest’ is one in which almost all that grows in it is edible and useful to human-beings, ranging from fruit trees to spice bushes and medicinal plants. On one hand, this greatly resembles many gardens found in certain rural villages and settlements, but, unlike those gardens, it has been planned and situated such that, over time, it can become totally autonomous. After 5-7 years it is no longer requiring ongoing human upkeep by: naturally collecting its own water, automatically fertilizing itself, and biologically exterminating its own natural enemies. Such a space also creates a meeting place and safe haven for local and migrating birds, butterflies, bees and, of course, people.
