Two year old permaculture system at The Farmer’s grove on slope

permaculture farm on slope

Only two seasons from a abused horse pasture too what you see in the photo. This is what a permaculture system can look like in very short order, even on a slope. We designed this system to work with nature to start an living ecology. As you can see with this part farm, it is a tree system that will produce some amazing fruit in the near future. We are building soil with rotations of cover crops year round. We also follow the pattern of nature by having maximum edge effect for great diversity of plant, animal life and using maximum solar gain. We have also stopped the devastating effects of erosion on a farmed slope by using very old technology as simple as placement of logs and rocks too digging micro swales that will slow and sink the water and nutrients into the slope.
