Apios 3.0 Crowd-Funding Campaign

We are exctied to announce that our Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign is live! We are raising $10,000 over the next 30 days to complete the development of Apios 3.0, which will see the revamping of the platform from the ground up, implementing new features, an intuitive user-interface, improved database structure, and more! Please help however you can, whether by donating or sharing the campaign with your friends and network. We thank you for your support!






The Edible Forest Gardens wiki is a co-creative space where ou can post photos and stories about perennial plants, polycultures, and forest gardens – and view posts from other edible forest gardeners from cold climates around the world. The wiki is growing quickly, and we'll soon be adding more features to better-categorize your forest gardens and polycultures. We look forward to your contribution.



Why you should be here:

We have experienced the reality that we can meet our human needs while regenerating healthy ecoystem function in our own back/front/side yards. We want to help more people do this all over the world.
