I have created a free mini webinar that covers a lot of the material in Your Edible Yard.
I discuss soil, compost vermicompost, water, weed suppression, types of plants, methods of gardening, guilds, food forests, medicinal herbs, and maximizing space. I hope you find it useful.
There is also a PDF attached that has a ton of resources for transforming your yard into an edible oasis!
Question: I live in a condo community that has lots of open ground, mature trees, and is quite hilly, but it is sloped with a South exposure in SE Pennsylvania.
In the past I have sneaked some tree saplings around the place. Now, I would like to place beneficial, medicinal, and fruit trees and plants. Not very many, as two of my beloved trees were killed by an outsider neighbor draining his pool onto the property here. From a permie perspective, the area I planted was perfect, in that the rain water would flow right to them, the pool water was unexpected and I tattled to the township about it.
Back to the question I forgot about, "what would be ideal plants and small trees, that I can sneak into safe spots that would provide food and medicine for the residents here?"
"Think a kind thought for the world"
