Another thing to watch out for is the trenches drying out. If you had sat in madrid with me this summer yoiu would called the climate here extreme, emiliia degrees sometimes more smilia extreme to me though other climates are more extreme. By overcasting, I mean I distributed more seeds then is recommended. She said sowing took two people two mounths time as if that was a record it seems a lot of time to me.
I then spread wheat straw, and hairy vetch seeds over all the mounds, watered, kept them moist for about a week.
The Integral Model 9. This consumes a lot of stored calories, and many weed seeds simply aren’t large enough to supply so much.

I’m still mystified by this direct sowing bit. What Bill says… “Permaculture permanent agriculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability and resilience of natural ecosystems.
Without permanent agriculture their is no possibility of a stable social order”. I deleted all of the off topic stuff.
Once you have a strong seed bank I could imagine a byproduct of mulch would be to reduce the density of germination.
Hmmm yes that’s an idea! Keep the soil undisturbed and uncompacted. If drought is always a problem, and flooding never is i. I am only writing with certainty because it is how I am raising my stuff.
I tilled the whole area that gets a decent amount of light through the summer and winter for the very last time. It is the harmonious integration of landscape and people providing their food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. Our main focus was in the vegetable gardens. Some rods are measuring device the upright ones in the path, my guess is that other are to hold down the straw.
You are welcome to talk about religion all you want. Home Who Are We? The path area, is just that, a path; and not a place for growing anything. I imagine you could even initiate the system with a mulch crop maybe a winter killed grain, or something leafy slashed in the spring I’ve done some and nothing germinated.

Also, many of the plants in her system were self-reseeding. The arching poles provide a trellis for climbing beans and other such plants so they can be integrated into the polyculture. I have some self seeding, both of weeds I like lambs quarters and chickweed as well as bygone veges.
I also followed her information on the Fukuoka website for more detailed information.
Mulch also conserves moisture by slowing direct evaporation. The second year I had lots of volunteer calendula, nasturtiums, lettuces, radishes, etc.
So, I re-watched the Hazlip videos from Emilix for the 20th time or so and went for it. This preserves the plastic, the water, and the mulch.
It leads to anger which leads to more work emillia me. I don’t want to step on any toes if there are Gnostics on this forum, but I found the religious message of that film series prevented me from liking it much, especially the third one.
The book mentioned by Emilia Hazelip can be purchased here: Here are some photos showing my process from last year: The synergistic garden by Emilia Hazelip Permaculture magazine, synergistic growing.
I gardened with Hazelip’s method last year, and to some extent this year I’ve just moved this summer. Helping Elena made me realise that keeping annuals can actually be very easy. Some soil nutrients are lost as vapor after a cut weed is left on top of the mulch, most notably water. This allows the nutrients that the plants brought up to return to the soil surface to break down, and you know the rest I reckon. Emilia Hazelip Emilia Hazelip – February 1, was an organic Permaculture gardener who was born in Spain and began gardening seriously in the late ’60s.
