Look what I found at the local bookstore!
Tell me I didn’t need this…
Any book that suggests I “use the edges” is a-ok! After browsing my typical farm and garden section of the bookstore I was only coming up with books focused on gardening 101, how to plant a seed, what a chicken looks like, and those books that just skim the top of the subject of raising backyard livestock. God knows I don’t need more animals –with the exception of upcoming quail of course– but I was looking for something with ideas I hadn’t thought of yet. Not to imply that I know all or anything… I am just at the point where I know what I want to do, just not fully how to do it.
Then, before giving up and going to the cookbook section, I spotted just the book I needed. “Permaculture” in big, yellow letters practically poked me in my eyeballs! Bam! Sold. From what I’ve skimmed, this book focuses on the integration of all the different aspects of farming; large or small. So in the next few hours I hope to glean new ideas on how to get our micro-farm to work for… our micro-farm. Theoretically, every piece should contribute to another creating a waste-free and full circle system.
I’ll let you know.
