Little Earth Orchard, Community Garden and Hoop House

Bermed Orchard holds Apple , Pear and Cherry Trees.  

We installed the trees on a warm autumn afternoon. The weather is extending our planting times. Far to the left of this scene is the hot composting soil builder bins.

The Clover is planted and hopefully we will get some ground cover before snow fall.

The system is developing before our eyes. Actually as planned on paper, but seeing the structure gives us renewed energy. The entire wall will be vegetated at the base with fruiting shrubs. Next spring we will be ready to go with the new garden farm. Thanks for help from Will Allen and the Women's Environmental Institute.

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.
