The Permabed System

Wednesday, November 29, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM   

One of the ways to farm more ecologically and improve long-term profitability is to diversify production. However, this can be challenging when efficiency and income must be maintained in the short-term while transitioning to better management practices. In addition, diversity of production can require different tools, techniques, and knowledge which may strain the farm manager. Our Permabed System is a garden management solution that includes a garden layout, principles and V for transitioning towards Guild Crop Production and Agro-ecological Land Patterning.It is scalable from 300 sq. feet to 3000 acres and emphasizes soil building practices alongside practical field management.
