Monoculture Vs Polyculture

Monoculture Vs Polyculture

Monoculture vs Polyculture is a big topic in farming circles today. If you look at nature you can see that it is natural for different plants to work together and benefit each other. The most well know human designed polyculture or guild is the Three Sisters, the Native Americans used this guild to produce corn, beans, and squash. The corn acts like a trellis for the beans and the squash act as a ground cover. Using this method they could produce more with less space, work less, and grow more nutrient dense foods.

Permaculture Design Course at East End Eden

Permaculture Design Course at East End Eden
Earlier this year I decided I was fully committed to living a Permaculture lifestyle. It was obvious that I had to take a PDC  also known as a Permaculture Design Course so I could learn everything as much as I could and get some hands on experiences! So I did some research and visited a few places that offered the course. When I went to visit Connor Jones at East End Eden I felt an instant connection. Conner took me on a tour of his Property and showed me all the amazing things he was doing. It was at that point that I knew I wanted to take my Permaculture Design Course at East End Eden.
Check out OjaiPermaculture.com to when the next permaculture course will be at East End Eden. I would highly recommend it as Conner is an amazing instructor. Also feel free to check out this article written during the course.

What is Permaculture?

What is Permaculture?

What is Permaculture? Well this is what I used to tell them “Permaculture is a design science for your life, based upon the highest ethical standards. It includes environmental design, integrated water resource management, and regenerative agricultural systems modeled from natural ecosystems.” It’s what get’s me out of bed ever morning!

Now I tell them that “Permaculture is a holistic approach to land and life design!” it’s also  what get’s me out of bed ever morning!
