Organic Gardening


I am trying to do an all natural garden this year, with as many organic principles as possible. This is my first year trying to go chemical free, so I'm excited about the possibilities. There is a web site with information on how to use
Basically the idea is to use plantibalism. Plantibalism means plant cannibalism, or using plants as food for other plants. It symbolizes the efforts of organic farmers to work in a cyclical nature without needing outside resources to sustain a farm. I love this idea. I'm going to try it. There is a pdf for sale on the site that explains a step-by-step method of how to do this. I now own a copy and it is wonderful, and seems easy if you pay attention to what you're doing.
The best part? Although the information in the packet in protected, the researches want to know feedback from those using the method. Any feedback that is shared is for free, and everyone benefits. The method is also self sustaining, and once you start the first time, you can grow your own fertilizer for the next season, so it's FREE Fertilizer after the first harvest. Beautiful.
*The research was conducted by a team at the University of Texas Austin, and is backed by scientific trial.
