I ran across two interesting links today. First is a 20 minute interview with Bill Mollison, one of the forerunners of the modern Permaculture movement. I’ve wanted to go to one of the 12-day permaculture classes but have never made the commitment. I’d especially like to see examples of permaculture applied to the midwest united states.
Another interesting link was a field experiment using various assemblages of vegetable and fruit in a “polyculture” arrangement from Ohio State. More details and photos are also available. I think this would be well worth the time of any small or market gardener to ponder and experiment with on your own farm.
