This video demonstrates a minimalist approach to creating a diverse and sustainable soil system by compost and mulch. • Less is more. • Add mulch to reduce evaporation and water use. • Feed your plants by building and adding compost, not by adding nutrients. • Chicken manure, kitchen, vegetable & garden waste, and woodchips mixed together will create a soil that is rich with microorganisms. • Control pests with comfrey, nettle and horsetail. This works to slow insects and promote plant vitality. • Companion planting draws pests away (bush beans). • Lasagna Composting: the process of layering compost and mulch to create healthy soil. • Learn more at yubariver.org • More videos at youtube.com/yubariverpeople and www.yubariver.org
