Strong, healthy soils with deep carbon levels retain water, promote biodiversity, create delightful landscapes and delicious, nutrient-dense vegetables and fruits. Healthy soil leads to healthy ecosystems and to healthy people. To make this happen, these are some of the key regenerative gardening strategies we use:
Maintain a living root to preserve life within soil
Keep soil covered (cover crops). This reduces erosion and supports life within soil.
Maximize crop diversity, use crop rotations, and companion cropping
Minimize soil disturbance (no dig or till)
Embrace wildlife, nurturing beneficial interactions, and valuing nature's cycles.
Create features to infiltrate storm water runoff, safeguarding from erosion and pollution (e.g.: rain gardens, swells)
Create systems to collect rainwater for use in the garden
Conventional Versus Regenerative
Did you know that many fruits and vegetables grown through conventional agricultural practices have fewer nutrients than those of decades ago? These practices degrade the soil and ultimately our health.
These ideas come from Regenerative Agriculture which acknowledges that the health of all living beings and the planet, fundamentally depends on the soil.
We have a professional team of Agronomy Engineers highly trained in permaculture and regenerative agriculture ready to design your garden and vegetable patch.
