Synopsis

"Edible Forest Gardens" is a groundbreaking two-volume work that spells out and explores the key concepts of forest ecology and applies them to the needs of natural gardeners in temperate climates. Volume I lays out the vision of the forest garden and explains the basic ecological principles that make it work. In Volume II, Dave Jacke and Eric Toensmeier move on to practical considerations: concrete ways to design, establish, and maintain your own forest garden. Along the way, they present case studies and examples, as well as tables, illustrations, and a uniquely valuable "plant matrix" that lists hundreds of the best edible and useful species. Taken together, the two volumes of "Edible Forest Gardens" offer an advanced course in ecological gardening - one that will forever change the way you look at plants and your environment.

A stupendous amount of relevant info under one cover 13. September 2006
Von Ben - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The more I use this book the more I realize how much is in here. There's not a time that I turn to the book for a specific piece of information and don't end up reading into other aspects that relate to the question at hand. The authors have chased down most any question to their logical, and integrated, extents. It's quite astounding that this much necessary and applicable information exists now under one cover. An essential reference for ecological land use. Many thanks to people dedicated enough to take the time and effort to share this much insight and information with the world at large. I am sure it will prove to be a crucial resource for survival many decades into the future.

In-Depth, Practical Permaculture 25. März 2010
Von George Roark - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
It's no surprise to learn that Dave and Eric worked for seven years to write the Edible Forest Gardens books; the depth and breadth of permaculture knowledge that they present is incredible. Although I've heard some say that these books are not an easy read, I've found them to be fascinating, enjoyable and indispensable.

I started my journey into permaculture with Gaia's Garden by Toby Hemenway, then decided to plant an edible forest in the back yard, so I purchased Volume 2 of Edible Forest Gardens, since it covers the practical consideration of forest gardening. Although this book is written so it can stand on its own, I also highly recommend volume 1, which focuses on the ecological vision and theory for temperate climate permaculture.

Highly recommended!

A "must have" for the gardening library 31. Januar 2011
Von Nat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Edible forest gardens Vol 2 deals with the design and practical side of creating a forest garden.
Having read Mollison's text and just about every other text I could get my hands on re:permaculture I had a reasonable amount of background knowledge and had got to the point where many of the books seemed to be rehashed versions of Mollisons. Not so this book.
In every chapter I found snippets of information I hadn't come across yet. Practical advice, and general 'of course..so simple!' moments abound in this extremely comprehensive text.
What I especially liked is the considerations of the "many' ways of creating a garden, rather than dictating one prescribed method. The book provides all the information and encourages the reader to find what fits to apply to their own situation. It gave me the confidence to experiment and try things out 'my' way.

My only critique (and it's a minor one) is that there are a few occasions when the authors repeat themselves a few too many times. I get that they're trying to hammer home the points they are making on those occasions, but with the book being so very lengthy and very inspiring...this reader didn't want to waste any time before getting out in the garden. I skimmed sections because of it.

Overall an incredible book - if you are looking for 1 definitive text on this subject, I'd say buy this one. Heartily recommended.

Wordy, but worth it. 28. August 2012
Von I Have Moxie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
These books are a very thorough exploration of the current knowledge base concerning edible forest gardening (though they cover a range of ecosystem-derived garden systems from shrublands to savannahs to the incorporation of typical organic annual systems and ecological succession theories). The second volume is more useful than the first in that it literally walks you through the design process (for any land area), spoon feeds you a great deal of necessary information in the hundreds of pages of appendices, and helps you formulate your own process for designing in the future. While the volubility and hand-holding is quite frustrating, if you follow the necessary steps scattered throughout you emerge with a very thorough understanding of the process of design with perennial edibles, patches, guilds, nutrient flows, water, and all the steps of implementation, from earthworks to planting. If you finished Gaia's Garden feeling enthusiastic but slightly neglected, this will cement key concepts into a thorough process and reference edition. I can't see any serious permaculture student in the eastern US ignoring this book, if only for the appendices and chapters 3&4. Highly recommended.
Love, love, love this book! 18. Juni 2014
Von Diana - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This was a required text for a course on Ecological Design that I was taking. It is a fabulous book. My instructor chose this volume because it includes more of the design process than Volume 1 (which was not required, but is on my wish list for reference materials). Dave Jacke takes you through the fundamentals of site analysis, evaluating opportunities and constraints and working through the design process.

The appendixes alone are probably worth the cost of the book. His nectary calendar is extremely useful for trying to identify plants that will provide food for various pollinators; the species by function chart helps you easily see the best nitrogen fixers and dynamic accumulators; his species lifespan list gives you a reference point for how often you will either need to purchase or regenerate a given species...

This is the first time I've ever felt strongly compelled to highlight and mark in my book. Normally, I sell my books back, but this one is a definite KEEPER! I have highlights and stickies throughout marking my most frequently referenced charts.

The only caveat/issue I can even think of is... the plants/species are more tailored to the North Eastern United States and less to the Western United States where I live... A great number of the species from the northeast are naturalized here or will grow here, but that may be a limitation/problem for some people.
