Food Forests, Functional Interconnection, and Self-Regulating Health
Hey Sam, have you read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver? If not, I think you'd enjoy it - it's about her first year living on a farm with her family, experimenting to see if she could live almost entirely off what she could produce locally or buy from her neighbours.
I'm so happy you're close by in New England now! Also, I'm looking forward to my own property benefitting from the lessons you learn establishing your food forest.
