Forest gardening is a type of permaculture which places emphasis on the importance and incorporation of trees. The concept of forest gardening is based on the structure of woodland ecosystems and thereby offers high productivity for relatively small spaces. Forest gardeners must be willing to forego planting in “rows” and instead embrace the free-flowing aspects of nature as they design a space.
