Permaculture - Regenerative & Restorative Land Practices

Lasagna or No Till Land management requires little maintenance.

Tilling damages soil structure, insect habitat & beneficial microbes that contribute to soil health.

This technique provides food and bedding for worms, which work through the layers turning the soil for you.

The last layer of mulch holds water, stops wind, sun, as well as rain erosion, suppresses weeds & encourages mycelium to flourish, which is integral to soil health.

Step 1. Thoroughly soak cardboard 

Step 2. Lay cardboard, suppress grass & weeds

​Step 3. Place a layer of compost over cardboard

Step 4. Place straw over compost​ (Repeat 3 & 4)

Step 5. Place layer of top soil over straw.​

Step 6. Place a layer of straw over top soil.​

Step 7. Place a layer of mulch over straw

Step 8. Soak thoroughly. Relax and enjoy!​

The benefits of creating food forests, edible landscapes and pollinator gardens are invaluable to our long term sustainability, yielding organic food, as well as habitat & food for wildlife. These food spaces providing refuge to wildlife through the deliberate building of biodiverse ecosystems.

Food Forests 

Grow

A Food Forest is an ancient tradition of mimicking (bio-mimicry) a woodland ecosystem, incorporating fruits trees, nut trees, berries, herbs, perennial food medicinal & pollinator and annual food.
