I'm doing a presentation in the early new year on urban and suburban forest gardening and am looking for more examples of temperate/cold climate, preferably. Anything helps though.

Submissions with species lists and short descriptions are most welcome. Let me know who I should credit please.

To get things started I'll post some of my own. Thanks for any additions

Hey travis,

I have posted some photos that might work here at my old project thread. Most have descriptions of the plant mixes.

Thanks so much! I hope I don't come off like I'm for pictures. I have enough of my own to suffice for a presentation but I want to show different ways that town and city forest gardens can happen, so I thought I'd ask for submissions.
