Polyculture Garden Bed Size - a Design Exercise

at Hagarville Food Forest

Update 8/4/2013:   I have moved forward with my design plan and thought I would add a picture of what the bed sizes look like fully populated :).

While I know that making errors is all part of learning I also know that we can learn by other’s experience (and errors). In General we want feedback on how wide to design and construct our polyculture based annual garden beds with wide paths planted with living mulch plants for chop and drop.

GMO Labeling Campaign Meetings Happening around the State

From TILTH News - forwarded by Seth Williams

Hi all, I want to let people know about this GMO campaign happening in Spokane this Wednesday Jan 23 and other dates on the West side, detailed below.  

Many GMO's are going through approval processes and could soon be showing up in ecosystems nearby, and once released may be uncontrollable. Their spread can do permanent damage to heirloom and organic foods, ...    Thanks,  Seth
