What is your opinion of Patrick Whitefield's book, How to Make a Forest Garden?

It is on sale by the publisher, Chelsea Green, until May 31. For further information:

I ask because I am wondering if it would be useful to add to my books at this time.

We are beginning to put in a permaculture food forest on our 1/4 acre lot in outer SE Portland, Oregon.

I would like to teach others to do this.

I learn best by hearing a lot of different people's approaches. This also frees me to think more creatively on the subject. I can teach better by hearing many ways to express similar ideas, to suit different people.

I have not taken a permaculture design course, because I am mostly interested in the food growing aspects and have to economize.

I have many years of experience with gardening and permaculture, and feel I have only scratched the surface.

I already own Dave Jacke's Edible Forest Gardens. Vols 1 and 2, and Martin Crawford's Creating a Forest Garden and Eric Toensmeier's Perennial Vegetables.

Thank you for sharing your insights.

Happiness, Health, Peace and Abundance for All!
