im generally not a fan of total permaculture. mainly because of the work it takes. but it is very nice to see people trying.

im more of an interplanting guy. i plant basil amongst my tomatoes, and i use very close spacing.

but sounds like you have a cool approach.

I am a huge fan of permaculture because of the passive rain harvesting systems that work big scale and should be done on modern AG, swales and berms, keylines and keypoints, farming on contour, with nature's dynamic patterns, enriching the land and with much lower maintenance once you get it running, builds soils and fertilizes itself like the woods or forest does, you become more of a forager
And I love to chop n drop ;) constant food for the soil

Had to pause the video had to walk some doggos, will resume later when on PC


Yes interplanting is nice, I will have a dense garden, then I will have an even denser orchard , food forest fully layered with each tree as a hub

I desire to make ponds and springs and stuff so I like to think of when I'm gone and future generations of fertility, so I want to get it running itself ultimately

You got an awesome approach aswell man!! Congrats,

We just have slightly different goal sizes, but very successful methodology. In my smaller area ( around my patio garden) I will treat it basically the same as yours (;

my main garden is 20' x 60', mostly with 4'x8' raised beds. and i have a small orchard and a 15'x60' red raspberry patch with a few patches of black raspberries.

i forgot peppers and tomatoes in my list!

looks like youve got a great list too, interplanting is how i sneak in so many varieties. and vertical trellises.
