Just ran across this Geoff Lawton video and thought some of you might enjoy it as well:
Pretty amazing! I wonder what variety or varieties of figs are in there and how long they've been growing in there. __________________ zone 5 Maine Seeking: Saint Martin, Naples White, Black Tuscan, Bécane, French Alps, Abruzzi, Tenica, Wild Mountain Figs from the coldest corners (Iranian, Turkish or other...would love seeds too)

Greg, LOVED the video!!! I'm on a forum currently where people are growing food forests. I haven't gotten into growing a food forest yet, although I would really like to. Some day. Anyway, here's a link to the forum where members discuss this at length. Thanks again for posting this. I think it is so important to really consider this type of planting.
