in this episode of The Solecast I talk with Aaron Parker of Edgewood Nursery. Aaron is a self-taught Horticulturist, Food forest designer and lover of Perennial Vegetables. We talk about food forest concepts and he breaks down some of his favorite perennial foods to grow & eat. We also discuss his work with Mt Joy in Portland, Maine, a free public orchard and food forest on the Eastern Promenade. Throughout this conversation we discuss some of the challenges of perennial vegetables, the health benefits and the history of pre-Columbian Americas as some of the largest food forest/agro-forestry projects in human history.
