Geoff takes us for a tour around an ancient 2,000-year-old food forest in Inraren, Morocco. He first visited this valley oasis in 1975, and he’s been back a handful of times to document the evolution of what many believe is the world’s oldest managed sustainable agriculture system.
If you don’t know what a food forest is, check out Geoff’s free Masterclass for an in-depth dive into all things permaculture at www.discoverpermaculture.com.
And if you want to read more about this forest garden, Eric Wallace from Atlas Obscura wrote a neat article titled “The Moroccan Food Forest That Inspired an Agricultural Revolution”: https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/what-is-permaculture-food-forests

Permaculture integrates land, resources, people, and the environment through mutually beneficial synergies – imitating the no waste, closed-loop systems seen in diverse natural systems. Permaculture applies holistic solutions that are applicable in rural and urban contexts and at any scale. It is a multidisciplinary toolbox including agriculture, water harvesting and hydrology, energy, natural building, forestry, waste management, animal systems, aquaculture, appropriate technology, economics, and community development.
Geoff is a world-renowned permaculture consultant, designer, and teacher that has established demonstration sites that function as education centers in all the world’s major climates. Geoff has dedicated his life to spreading permaculture design across the globe and inspiring people to take care of the earth and each other and to return the surplus.
