The other day, David Homa came to work with Ruby and me for a day and walk us through a couple of aspects of building a permaculture food forest: amending the soil based on our soil tests, sheet mulch over an existing lawn, and building a hugelkultur.
Early in March, Land of Plenty came and cleared the Norway Maples to make room for the food forest shrubs and trees. Charlotte, Ruby and I spent a couple of days making permaculture piles of branches and duff.
Root magic is when you take a little stick, or a little seed, and you coax it into making roots – the foundation of plant life. No roots, no plant life.
