A New Zealand Food Forest

I first saw these videos on the Subsistence Pattern blog. These videos tell the story of the Guytons "who started planting their food forest in 1998 on two acres of bare land in Riverton, New Zealand. This style of gardening was new to Southland so their neighbours did not approve. Now it is an established food forest with hundreds of different plant species. Fruit and nut trees, berries and herbs and wild plants all blended together in a productive and sustainable way."

To me, these videos (especially the first) are inspiring...
