They are a great way to introduce wildlife into urban gardens and create thriving, living soil that is filled with worms, mushrooms and millions of soil organisms. Healthy soil promotes healthy plants and healthy plants can withstand attacks from pests. Without the need to remove large infestations of pests, beneficial insects can move in and create a full system of natural, predatory control to keep you urban food forest system in check, balanced and thriving. To be able to benefit from the full food forest experience you need to plan in advance, know your local climate, sun movement and seasonal weather change and plant accordingly.
