Paradise Valley in Morocco is one of the oldest forest gardens in the world (allegedly 2000 years). It is located near the coast, between the villages Inraren and Tamzergourte. 800 people from the area work in forest. The over-story is mainly date palm, and the under-story includes carob, banana, quince, olive, fig, pomegranate, guava, citrus, mulberry, tamarind, and grape. Despite being surrounded by arid desert, the forest is cool and lush.
