Permakultura - Food Forest

I was asked to install a fruit tree orchard for a client. When i looked at the area specified, my first thought was, "there's a lot of water just coursing down this hillside".
My second thought was, "I'd love to install a food forest here".
I explained my idea and the clients were intrigued by the idea and loved the opportunity to integrate the native hillside with a cultivated forest setting.

I personally find the food forest to be a really exciting concept. Food, habitat, water conservation, it's really the development of a macrocosmic system and it's thrilling to watch as it begins to unfold.
I was introduced to food forests through Geoff Lawton and was just taken back by the results of the early Permaculture Research Institute and his Greening the desert short.
As i'm living in the arid southwest, this concept just made sense and it continues to be a major focus for me.
I'll be posting new photos and video of the Valley Center Food Forest shortly. We're coming up on the 6th month of installation and things are progressing nicely.

Some corrections in my dialog.

Establishing a food forest takes more than a couple of years to become it's own regenerative system, somewhere in the 5 to 7 year range.

Nitrogen fixing plants take atmospheric nitrogen and place it in the soil.
