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.
