Does anyone know of any good books on growing forest gardens in arid and Mediterranean climates. I have found several for wetter areas but do not know of any that would work well with my local climate due to its lower rain fall and warmer temps.

yes, I had seen the greening the desert videos, they are amazing and one of the reasons I even thought forest gardening might be possible in my area. I had really hoped to find something more in depth on the subject, though.

Wow, that is a beautiful summary of Forest Gardens, and some beautiful examples.

Thanks for the link and the look.
