The forests of Appalachia can host an incredible diversity of delicious foods, making our region ideal for the practice of forest farming--a sustainable production system which helps keep a forest healthy by introducing more biodiversity. This practice introduces cultivated crops into forest settings by integrating trees and shrubs, offering up inventive ingredients to the food system while also offering environmental, economic and social benefits. Almost any plant or fungus that needs shade can be grown in a forest farming system. Join Chow Chow for mouth-watering tastes of the forests as you learn from Craig Mauney, local forest farmer and paw paw ambassador, and Bill Whipple, of the Acornucopia Project and Asheville Nuttery.
