Alphabet Forest proposes a poeto-arboreal entanglement of poetry and permaculture. The publication contains an alphabetical assemblage of vegetal beings gleaned from poetry spanning 2,051 years. Those trees, shrubs and wild herbs—each of them initially described by a different poet—hold the promise of thriving together as a biodiverse and self-regenerating forest ecosystem.
