Geoff Lawton discovers a 300 year old food forest that has been tended for 28 generations by the same family. Incredibly it is in the suburbs of a Vietnamese city and only 2 acres in size yet it provides all the food and medicines for an entire family all year round. It is so well established that it looks like a natural system and Geoff cannot see the elements of human design, yet of course they are there. Visit this amazing garden with him and experience what was a traditional way of growing food around and towns and cities, a horticulture that will become part of our future once peak oil begins to bite.

Maria, have a look at this clip of an oasis that is a food forest that has thrived for two millennia - amazing:
Absolutly wonderful. Of all of the inspirational people I've encountered thus far in my short forest gardening/permaculture sojourn, Geoff Lawton is the most most inspiring. If only he were based in the UK.
