Food forests have become iconic of the Permaculture movement. A food forest is an intentionally designed perennial poly-culture that is intended to produce a diverse number of products including food, fuel and medicinals. A food forest is a type of agro-forestry that seeks to mimic the patterns of a natural forest in order to develop a human designed system of production that possess the resilience and abundance of a natural forest system. San Isidro Permaculture is experienced in the successful designs, installation and maintenance of food forests and their many components.
