A forest garden with 500 edible plants could lead to a sustainable future

This type of agroforestry mimics natural ecosystems and uses the space available in a sustainable way. UK-based Martin Crawford is one of the pioneers of forest gardening. Starting out with a flat field in 1994, his land has been transformed into a woodland and serves as an educational resource for others interested in forest gardening.

This short film by Thomas Regnault focuses on Crawford’s forest garden, which is abundant, diverse, edible, and might be one answer to the future of food systems.

  1. This is a fantastic idea, and one that I could see working well in many areas of the world. As someone who lives in a less-temperate climate, I wonder how well it would work in my area or whether it would work at all. Thanks for the insight!
