Martin Crawford, 2010, 384 pp. SECTION: Permaculture and Trees, This was my coffee-break book for about a month and I am still in awe. A brilliant, well-organized book that walks you through the whole process of creating a sustainable forest garden that produces on multiple veritcal levels and largely defends and fertilizes itself. Crawford has something like 500 plants on two acres and regularly picks 20 varieties for his salads which change with the seasons, and recommends you have 50 varieties even for a small garden. The comprehensive directory of over 450 trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennals, herbs, annuals root crops and climbers are mind boggling; almost all edible, but also medicinal, nitrogen-fixing, fiber and even wax producing plants.

I have read Creating a Forest Garden from cover the cover, twice! It is absolutely a must have resource for anyone looking to grow a permanent garden. It is in depth, but easy to follow, easy to understand, and provides step by step instructions and pictures on how to accomplish every single step of creating your forest garden. Its sections on specific plants and on which layer of the forest garden to plant them, is absolutely ideal: great for both the beginner and the experienced gardener. Thank you Bountiful Gardens for offering this excellent resource. Thank you Crawford for the devotion it has taken to write such a masterpiece.
