Create an edible forest in permaculture to regain autonomy and abundance

Creating an "edible forest" or "food forest" involves planting a wide variety of edible plants at different heights, inspired by forest systems. Thanks to their mutual interactions, the chosen species require little soil work, weeding, or pest control, resulting in a productive and healthy system.

This book provides all the keys to create a forest-garden adapted to our climate, regardless of the size of the project: design, planting and maintenance advice; but also a directory of over 500 trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, vegetables, and climbers, all edible or useful, all cultivable and available locally, and many of them lesser-known.

I'm sorry, but "CRAWFORD Martin" does not have a specific meaning in French. It seems to be a name or phrase without context. If you can provide more information or clarify the context, I would be happy to help with the translation.
