Hi everyone,

Sometimes getting to visit a food forest can be difficult. Well, I've sort of saved everyone a lot of trouble and put together a short video of about 700 photos showing how quickly a food forest can grow - all from the comfort of your arm chair (or wherever!). You can see the seasons change, and the herbage grow underneath the fruit trees. The chickens pop in and out of the photos and observant viewers can even spot some of the huge diversity of wildlife that shares the farm here.

The farm is split into two halves with two different food forests. This video shows the more shady food forest which has cooler varieties of fruit trees such as pears, cherries, nuts and apples. The other food forest which is more sunny (and you don't get to see in the video) has the more sun loving fruit trees such as almonds, citrus, apricots, plums, nectarines and peaches.

The bird calls in the audio were recorded a few weeks back and that is what the food forest sounds like here.

Hope you enjoy the video:

I also have a weekly blog and pdocast which you may enjoy!
