I'm not sure if this has made the rounds on here yet, but I thought I'd share. It's a free download I got some time ago. Can't even remember where I got it.    But it has a lot of information in it about food forest trees and plants that grow well in the Pacific Northwest (and probably other places as well), plant profiles, and examples of food forests. I thought some of you might be interested in taking a look at it. I reduced the size of the pdf, but it is still 7.4 MB. Let me know if you want the larger size to print out and I'll post it.

Enjoy!

Thanks Tracy!
I'm on the East Coast, so might not apply completely. But I'm taking a look anyway.

It's pretty great, isn't it? I've been through it a few times, and always find something new to add to my ever expanding list of desirable things to grow. Glad you're all enjoying it!

Thanks for sharing this! There's a lot of great information in here specific to the west coast. I haven't made my way all the way through it yet, but I've already found so much I can apply to what I'm doing.

It's great, isn't it?! Finding that was a real breakthrough for me in planning my food forest. Can't wait to get more stuff in the ground!
