About the Author

Plants For A Future (PFAF) is a charity providing a resource and information centre for edible and otherwise useful plants. The main aims of the charity are researching and providing information on ecologically sustainable horticulture, promoting a high diversity, holistic and permacultural approach namely 'woodland gardening'. The aim is to use a minimal input of resources and energy, create a harmonious eco-system and cause the least possible damage to the environment whilst achieving high productivity. Plants For A Future develop and administer the online pfaf.org edible and medicinal plant database which includes information on approximately 7,000 useful plants. Plants For A Future believe plants can provide people with the majority of their needs, in a way that cares for the planet's health. A wide range of plants can be grown to produce all our food needs and many other commodities, whilst also providing a diversity of habitats for our native flora and fauna.

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Tamarjaks on 21 Dec. 2013
Format: Paperback
Why o why have we got to buy a selection of these books, when all the information that these books contain can be found in series of leaflets that are available from the "plants for a future" website. The original book "PLANTS FOR A FUTURE" by ken fern is by far a superior read. To the best of my knowledge ken fern is no way responsible for these books and I therefore feel very annoyed that it is implied that he was part of this cashing-in exercise by using the banner of "PLANTS FOR A FUTURE". Please Please take my advice go for the original book or go through the website [...] for these leaflets. These leaflets were researched and produced by ken fern.
