Food Forest

This one is in India, and it started on barren land.  This is the kind of thing I mean when I say that humans can make soil faster than nature.  It's just not that hard to patch over a bare spot.  You heap plant matter on it and wait for the stuff to rot.

I've seen at least a couple of examples in Terramagne where people made food forests, sometimes starting from clearcut or farmed-out land.  If you know what you're doing, you can make it go pretty fast.  If you don't know that much, just pile up as much organic matter as you can get and wait for wildlife to shit seeds into it.  You always get fruit that way.
