Seek Not To Feed Your Plants, Feed Their Soil


The understanding of soils is valuable for all permaculture designers. We can design a permaculture system that works with and not against the nature of that particular soil-type. We can plan a succession of plants, reintroduce micro-organisms and cleansing plants and ultimately achieve higher productivity for the site using nature as our guide rather than importing mined resources (ie. phosphate, lime or minerals) to change the soil-type.
