Cover of book Planting in a Post Wild World

Having a few issues with Planting in a Post-Wild World by Thomas Rainer & Claudia West. From a #ForestGarden perspective, there’s some interesting stuff: the use of landscape archetypes to simplify the design process, designing in communities, utilising layers. But my biggest issue can be summarised in a five word quote from the book:

“Planting exists to please people.”

As a counter-balance, please read A New Garden Ethic by Benjamin Vogt. And please plant for everyone and everything.
