In This Brief Bite:
Greg talks with Zach Loeks about old growth. Most of us think of redwood forests or the Amazon, but Zach explains how the concept of old growth also applies to food forests. Learn what old growth is and listen as Zach paints a beautifully vivid picture of what it looks like. He takes us on a journey through time, traveling back to the food forests of our ancestors, and forward to imagine what his planting will look like hundreds of years in the future.
