My partner sent this to me.  I hadn't known the history of the cold-climate food forest in the USA and of the food forest behind Tree Crops: a Permanent Agriculture.  It's cold climate plus hot summers (100 Fahrenheit)!  Untended for decades.

Also could use support--people who can get across to the developer who wants to take down these trees the value of what he'd be throwing away.

Very cool.  I would definitely donate to this organization and try to get seeds/cuttings to plant!
