Food Hidden in Plain Sight - Forest Gardening and
Back to Eden - Growing food in beds of Much for a
sustainable food source with minimum work.

[link to perennialvegetables.org]

Seven-layer system
The seven layers of the forest garden

Robert Hart pioneered a system based on the observation that the natural forest can be divided into distinct levels. He used intercropping to develop an existing small orchard of apples and pears into an edible polyculture landscape consisting of the following layers:

1 Canopy layer- consisting of the original mature fruit trees.
2 Low-tree layer- of smaller nut and fruit trees on dwarfing root stocks.
3 Shrub layer- of fruit bushes such as currants and berries.
4 Herbaceous layer- of perennial vegetables and herbs.
5 Ground cover layer - of edible plants that spread horizontally.
6 Rhizosphere or underground- dimension of plants grown for their roots and tubers.
7 Vertical layer- of vines and climbers.

A key component of the seven-layer system was the plants he selected. Most of the traditional vegetable crops grown today, such as carrots, are sun loving plants not well selected for the more shady forest garden system. Hart favoured shade tolerant perennial vegetables.

Perennial Vegetables

1. Ramps, or Wild Leeks (Allium tricoccum). This onion relative grows wild in deciduous forests east of the Mississippi, emerging in spring. Leaves and bulbs are both edible. Grow in a shady border in moist loam, or naturalize beneath trees. Hardy to Zone 4.

2. Groundnut (Apios Americana). Native to eastern North America, this nitrogen-fixing, 6-foot vine bears high-protein tubers that taste like nutty-flavored potatoes. Grow the vines as Native Americans did:
near a shrub (as support) in a moist site that receives full sun or partial shade. Harvest in fall. Hardy to Zone 3.

3. Asparagus (Asparagus officinalis). This familiar plant is long-lived and productive, bearing delicious green or purple shoots in spring.
Asparagus thrives in full sun and moist, well-drained soil.
For best production, plant male hybrids. Hardy to Zone 3.

4. Good King Henry (Chenopodium bonus-henricus). A traditional European vegetable known for its tasty shoots, leaves and flower buds, this spinach relative grows in full sun or partial shade and moist, well-drained soil. Plant seeds in compost-enriched soil, and harvest the tender shoots in spring. Hardy to Zone 3.

5. Sea Kale (Crambe maritime). Sometimes grown as an ornamental, this coastal native bears gray-blue leaves and white flowers on 3-foot-tall plants. Cover the plants in spring and harvest the blanched, hazelnut-flavored shoots when they are about 6 inches tall.
The young leaves and flowers are edible, too.
Plant nicked seeds in moist, well-drained soil in full sun. Hardy to Zone 4.

6. Jerusalem Artichoke, or Sunchoke (Helianthus tuberosus).
Grown by Native Americans, sunchokes bear sunflowerlike blooms on 6- to 12-foot stems. The crisp, sweet tuber can be eaten raw and used like potatoes. An added bonus: Sunchokes attract beneficial insects. Plant tubers in full sun and well-drained soil. Harvest in fall and winter. Hardy to Zone 2.

7. Lovage (Levisticum officinale). The young leaves and stems of this 6-foot-tall perennial are an excellent substitute for celery in springtime soups. The seeds and roots are also edible, and the umbel flowers attract beneficial insects. Lovage thrives in average garden soil, in sun or partial shade. Hardy to Zone 4.

8. Rhubarb (Rheum x cultorum). Although most people think of rhubarb for dessert, the reddish stems have a long history of use as a vegetable in soups in Asia. Caution: Don’t eat the leaves or roots, which are poisonous. Plant rhubarb roots in full sun and rich, well-drained soil. Harvest in spring. Hardy to Zone 1.

9. French Sorrel (Rumex acetosa). The lance-shaped leaves of sorrel add a wonderful, lemony tang to salads and soups, and they can be harvested from early spring to late fall. Look for sorrel transplants in the herbs section at your local nursery. Sorrel grows in sun or shade and average soil. Hardy to Zone 3.

10. Crosnes, or Chinese Artichoke (Stachys affinis). Also known as mintroot, this little-known mint relative sets out runners that form a dense, 12-inch-high ground cover. The small, white tubers are crisp and sweet, and add a great crunch to salads. Harvest the tubers annually for best plant growth (just leave a few for the following year). Grow crosnes in full sun or partial shade in well-drained soil. Hardy to Zone 5. (For more info,
see Crunch a Bunch of Crosnes.)


Keeping your perennial plantings going isn’t much different from caring for annual crops. In fact, after they’ve been established, perennial vegetables practically care for themselves. “These plants have deeper root systems, so they need fewer outside resources — such as fertilizer and water — than annual crops usually need,” says Toensmeier.

Giving the plants a strong start is key. Before planting, dig compost and other necessary amendments deeply into the soil, as you would for perennial flowers. Give aggressive perennials, such as Jerusalem artichokes or self-seeding garlic chives, their own bed so they won’t overtake more modest growers.

Be especially sure to stay on top of weeds the first year
or two until your perennials have spread out above and below the ground. Mulch the beds with a generous layer of compost, wood chips or shredded leaves early on. “You also can experiment with an edible ground cover, such as violets or wild strawberries,” Toensmeier says.

With its increased diversity, your garden should have fewer
insect and disease problems. For added insurance against pests, Weick interplants calendula and other flowering plants to attract beneficial insects (for more on attracting beneficials, see Enlist Beneficial Insects for Natural Pest Control). Otherwise, maintenance is simple. Feed perennials annually
with compost or another organic fertilizer, replenish the
mulch each spring, and remove any weeds that sneak in.
Consider these measures a small investment, because
“planting perennial edibles is planting for the future,”
Weick says. “Over time, you’ll put in less work and harvest
more food, while building diversity and stewarding the land
for future generations.”
Permaculture Gardening: A Natural Way to Grow

Developed by Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren
in the 1970s, permaculture is “an ecological design system
for sustainability in all aspects of human endeavor,”
according to the Permaculture Institute in Santa Fe, N.M.
The approach is modeled on the structure and relationships
of natural ecosystems, and the principles can be applied
to growing food, building homes and communities, and more.
Learn more at the Permaculture Institute website and in our
Permaculture blog, to which permaculture gardener and
educator Bethann Weick regularly contributes.

In a Grid down situation, try hard to get a large distance between you and large Cities.

Just like after the first 2-3 snowstorms all the idiots who drive the speed limit have taken themselves off the road, after 2-3 months all the Ignorant who did not prepare will be dead of exposure, bad water, starvation, gangs or disease.

Re: Survival Skills
Great list. I think they should cross out "sword" from the list, because they are hard to find unless you include machette's, and overly priced. And also, a 6 foot staff can beat a 1handed sword or even a 2handed sword any day of the week, people who train in the martial arts know this. The 16th century Western swordfighters knew this.

The staff is the ultimate melee weapon, simply cannot be beat by any other close combat weapon. Its ability to retract and fight at multiple ranges make it superior.
