Taking design cues from the nature, the annual kitchen garden beds utilize certain management practices to optimize the soil and plant health.
- Deep mulching with leaves and wood chips
- No till beds, chop and drop plant maintenance
- Polyculture planting
- Using the shape of the land along with woody material to store water in the effort to minimize and eliminate the need for irrigation.
- Heirloom and open pollinated seeds for genetic heritage and seed saving.
