Another Question for Dave?

Welcome to Permies Dave! Does your book cover regions? Huh... that question didn't really come out too clear did it. What I mean is that the info I've come across before is all about how to set up and design edible food forest gardens in other area's of the country, I live in the Pacific Northwest, (and plan on staying here) so I'm curious about how to go about designing an edible food forest garden for my area and was wondering if your book covers it or if it's basically the same for all regions?

Most of the info I run across seems to assume that people are very familiar with the concept of food forests, and to a (very small) degree I am. But I'm not conversant enough to know if it's the same for every region. I don't want to come off stupid or simply assume that it is the same and when I actually get the chance to try it, make a bunch of major mistakes that others seem to simply take for common sense.

I don't know a lot about researching this kind of thing so I don't automatically know the right questions to ask, or even the correct search phrases to enter into Google (at least I don't seem to come up with any real answers). So instead I tend to ask the people who actually do know, for information that many more conversant folks might assume that I could find on my own. So, if this is a stupid question that I could find out easily with a simple Google search, then I ask you that you please forgive me.

Also, when starting out on planning an edible food forest, what types of questions should I be asking myself? I really want to have it (mostly) worked out on how to go about designing things so I can be ready when I get my own property. I don't have any of your books yet, (I have a limited income) but I do plan on getting them when I can.

Oh... I guess I should say something about the possible free stuff...

I'm not capable of traveling, so tickets to the workshop would not be something I could use. But I don't have any of your books (Yet!) so would definitely be interested in that if I got chosen. Thanks much, I hope I put this question in the right forum...
