I just put out a video on my edible acres youtube channel sharing some notes on a system for potting up multiple species and structures of plants in a single pot to establish a functional guild in the pot.  This can then be planted out as a unit to have plug and play guilds in a food forest.  Thought I'd share the idea since it's so dead simple and can be modified to meet whatever situation..
