Food Forests

A quiet revolution is taking root in streets, schools, and parks around Aotearoa, New Zealand; seeding long-term, multi-generational solutions for our food.
Edible Paradise travels to the four corners of Aotearoa to meet with local food campaigners instrumental in creating community orchard and multilayered perennial 'Food Forest' projects in their patch.
Central to the story is how a Canterbury couple saved thousands of heritage fruit trees from the bulldozers and the dream to green the 'redzone' in the aftermath of the 2011/12 Canterbury Earthquakes.
These practical and inspiring examples define community in action, and have seen the establishment of food forest projects that will be a legacy for future generations.
