Nut based agroforestry offers a huge potential to increase the ecosystem functions of human habitats. Osker Brown, of Glorious Forest Farm, will discuss all aspects of nutrition, harvest, storage, processing, and culinary use of acorns, hazelnuts, chestnuts, hickories, and black walnuts. We will show and tell tools and methods for processing, and sample some treats. We will also cover tending wild habitats for these crops, as well as cultivation of them in managed landscapes, and integration with livestock and annual cropping systems. Learn about the abundance of nuts around you and explore their many beneficial uses. In part 4, we begin with Osker describing the permaculture earthworks installation of berms and alleyways planted with nut trees at one of our farms before we visit the location and walk the land.
