A newbie question here.

I listened to podcast #57 Preparing a Food Forest last evening. In it Paul talked about sun scoops a bit. I've googled, youtubed, looked it up in Gia's Garden and Intro to Permaculture and searched the forums here, but didn't find too much information.

Could someone explain further? Pictures of sun scoops would be fantastic!

I found some ideas on what to look for at:

suntrap - a terrace or garden or polyculture oriented to take advantage of the sun while protected from cold winds.
