I was just on a farm that was going to bush hog millions of dollars into mulch. I’m not making this up, true story. Besides what money/value being bush hogged they are also spraying a few more million dollars of real world value with round up.

We also look at designing a tree nursery that is ethical, low energy, high cash flow, no planting cost and ends inventory issues.

If your need money to buy a farm, change how you see money, resources and value. In today’s world there are a lot of want to be farmers that THINK they can’t afford farm ground, tools and plants. The reason that future young farmers have such a hard time is that they want someone to give them something for nothing or that wealth only comes from a pay check. Money is all around each of us, most folks just don’t see it. If they don’t see it, they have to trade labor and time for money. This approach is common, but not as productive to build wealth as understanding value. Once you see the value all around you, YOU have to do the work.

Permaculture is design, but the design need physical aspects to become more than imagination. Trees are a major part of a lot of permaculture and regenerative farms and organic food garden systems. Have you priced quality trees lately, the price might give anyone sticker shock when buying a  volume of trees. Lets face it, too plant what we can see on some videos of permaculture and regenerative farms would bust the several hundred thousand mark and even over a million dollars in plants. That cost will make most of us weak in the knees. First off, most systems are not planted at one time, but over several years. The real money to build a real system if you buy all your plants can be over whelming.

So why grow your own trees, you can save money, extend your systems, build more diversity with in your system, and make some of that evil money we all hear about. These are practical reasons to grow your own trees. We cover several reasons you should have your own permaculture or regenerative farm or back yard tree nursery. As you will see, propagating your own trees is not complicated, no degree is needed. Folks have been propagating trees for thousands of years. No Google, internet or college degree was needed for them. You can do this. You can reap the rewards of growing trees as your system also reaps the rewards from you growing trees. Plus, propagating trees is just plain cool and fun!
