Your goal with food forestry is to create systems that foster natural nutrient cycles. And ideally, they are designed in a way that minimizes the work involved!

Carmen Lamoureux is one of the main instructors for our annual Online Permaculture Design Courses, a master gardener, and a food forest expert. Enjoy this video taken in Carmen’s yard where she discusses how she manages biomass in her front yard permaculture garden.
