When the value of fresh food is realized.

What is the message when a community must put up eight foot fences around a community garden. Obviously a needed structure for reasons that would cause such expense. Is this food security? A far cry from the many mid-season abandoned plots of community gardens in my area, and on the other hand, complete garden harvests stolen in one night.

Permaculture and Polyculture Consulting and Design
Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
