Episode-917- 11 Common Gardening, Permaculture and Homesteading Questions
Summary: Polyculture is Often the Answer When I speak or do videos or even do a podcast there are common questions that always seem to pop up. Given that is the case I figure most people could learn from at least a few of them, so today’s show is dedicated to answering some of the more common ones and a few of the more complex ones. My feeling is that in many instances people over think some of these issues and in other areas many people simply under think them. In many ways we simply need to understand that nature knows what she is doing, on the other hand we need to understand nature so we can best channel the existing energies. Join Me Today As I Answer….
