“Experts (sic) seem to beLIEve that vegetable crops cannot be grown efficiently without fertilizers. They debate whether composted animal manures are better than chemical-based fertilizers, which is worse for climate change, more ethical, sustainable, or profitable. This is a false debate rooted in antiquated beLIEfs. In this video I show how vegetables can be grown WITHOUT fertilizers, insecticides, pesticides, herbicides, etc.
I just finished watching this 5-hour video tour of Paul Gautschi’s Back to Eden garden as it appears in June, 2015. It’s not scripted like the documentary (which has had at least 25 million views!). Paul is just gushing with gems of wisdom. He’s truly a master gardener of the highest caliber with one of the best gardens in the world.
About a month ago I trimmed our mulberry trees to encourage new growth and extra fruit production. It seemed such a waste to throw the branches in the compost pile so I looked for a suitable place to plant 10” pieces of the branches to grow some new mulberry trees. I found two neglected parts of our garden where I could push the branches into the ground by hand. I was very surprised at how easily the mulberry sticks went into the ground with just hand pressure. This soil was compacted clay subsoil almost as hard as rammed earth two and a half years ago!!!! Now it’s turned into about 12” of topsoil.
The continuing drought in California is contributing to higher food prices. As explained in this Zero Hedge article the drought is expected to get much worse. It could even turn into drought of epic proportions according to some new scientific studies. This is serious stuff. California provides 80-95% of many fruits and vegetables. It’s time to prepare.
“This is the complete 6-1-2014 tour of Paul Gautschi’s Back to Eden garden on one video. This is four hours of Paul talking about why he gardens the way he does and answering questions from people on his tour.

“The organic growing system that has resulted from Paul Gautschi’s incredible experiences has garnered the interest of visitors from around the world. However, never until now have Paul’s methods been documented and shared like this!”
