Excellent video by One Yard Revolution YouTube channel, one of my favorite gardening channels now. This is the goal for much of our garden – all the spaces in between trees, bananas, papayas, pineapples, etc. are being planted as explained in this video. These are all robust, fast, easy to grow plants that keep growing every year with minimal maintenance. These perennials and self-seeding annuals are planted in an intensive polyculture, much like you’d find naturally in nature. It’s no surprise that gardens like this attract massive quantities of earthworms and effective microorganisms. ‘Weeding’ primarily involves thinning the plants and eating them.
Must see video of a super productive, suburban backyard vertical garden made with salvaged materials. Enlarge video to full screen. Get a pen and paper handy to take notes. Pause occasionally to catch details. As you’re watching with gaping mouth, keep in mind the plants are only ten weeks old. Love for Life is trying to encourage people to work together to create similar gardens and unplug from the system. Be sure to catch the song at the end near 46:35.
