In This Brief Bite: Greg invites Crystal Stevens on our show to illustrate the seven dense layers of a food forest and the important role each layer provides to an ecosystem. From the top canopy layer to the microbes under the soil, Crystal points out how each layer is an interrelated network that optimizes nutrient uptake at each level. She closes with the importance of dynamic accumulators, an underestimated aspect for creating healthy soil.   Don’t miss an episode!
