Restoration Agriculture & in Practice DVD combo
Restoration Agriculture in Practice DVD
Monoculture farming works against nature, takes more energy and inputs, and produces concentrated and often toxic wastes. Over time, resources are depleted and yields decline. Polyculture farming systems are integrated, diverse systems which are more resilient and mimic nature. So-called wastes become resources. Ecosystems are restored and balanced. Once established, very little effort is needed to maintain the systems.
In this professionally produced video Mark Shepard takes viewers on a video tour of his Wisconsin farm and conducts a full-scale introductory presentation on his unique combination of permaculture, silvaculture, agroforestry and eco-farming. Understand biomes and how to choose appropriate crop-producing perennials for your region. See real-world examples of traditional and innovative modified keyline water management principles. Experience transitional strategies firsthand to move from annual commodity crops to perennials which benefit the entire farm ecosystem. Copyright 20014, DVD (NTSC DVD format for U.S. and Western Hemisphere), 135 minutes.
I bought this book to help me start a permaculture farm. The book is always better, but I had to buy the dvd to watch with some of my family members who don’t like to read. I received good information on helping me to start my journey to restoring my farm.
