Nothing beats the productive capacity of the small Urban Permaculture backyard. It’s more productive per square foot than conventional agriculture. It’s into theses small spaces, that the most changes are being made.
In the video, Angelo, one of Geoff´s students, took these Permaculture ideas and changed the way he now grows food. He has transformed his tiny 650 square foot garden into a Permaculture wonderland full of diversity and abundance. He’s harvested over 70 kilos of vegetables in 5 months!
The video also looks at mini swales. People are installing them into their gardens. Should you?
