Regenerative Permaculture Farm and Garden podcast 2, natural farming, cover crops, building soil
This week on the Regenerative Permaculture Farm and Garden Podcast we look at natural farming. A few things first about Natural Farming that seems to get lost when getting involved with a simple natural approach to farming. We talk about not just following a system of someones you read about. Every system need to be put in personal perspective and context. An example of this is seed balls.
Then we get into regenerative soil building with cover crops. I received a message about this and thought we could cover the topic better than we could with a short message. Cover crops can jump start any system if done in a productive way. I don’t use a tractor, because I follow the Natural Farming mindset. I broadcast seeds by hand and always try to have a plan that helps me instead of fighting me. We will cover how I have found to grow cover crops in a certain order to get a great result. Then, as in permaculture, we want our personal systems to recycle its own energy and nutrients. What are some ways we can help our farm or gardens reach this goal.
Correction in podcast. The farm I’m talking about is Japan is 1.25 acre. In the podcast I got mixed up in my hand with some other system I have been looking into. Sorry about this, but I’m human.
