Recently I did a video called “Ask Me Anything about Aquaponics” due to a lot of confusion, misinformation and some well, out right lies about aquaponics on our ReGen Ag Group at Facebook. In spite of the reasons for doing it, 95% of the questions came from a very positive space and I really enjoyed doing it.
It has led me to want to do a series of “ask me anything” style videos. Not all will be agriculture/permaculture based but the next one at least will be. I am doing the next one on food forest systems.
So ask away. Now just like aquaponics I do not claim to be an expert here just someone with some real world experience.
I have built a pretty amazing 3/4 forest based system on what for all intents and purposes is a slab of limestone. Been involved with several other large and small installations. That said my personal niche is really small scale stuff, 1/10th to say 2-3 acres. I am happy to take questions about larger systems, but really I hope to gear this mostly toward helping folks transform the smaller parcels most of you have to work with.
Additionally if you have earthworks questions please only those specifically tied to food forestry for now. We may do an earth works one later, but I may ask Geoff Lawton to tag team that one with me if we do it.
So below ask me anything you ever wanted to know about establishing and managing food forest systems.
Also here is the first video in the series on Aquaponics to give you a feel for how these videos go.
