Permaculture has arrived at the Urban Chicken

So we can’t actually pinpoint when and where we first heard about permaculture but we’re completely sold on the idea.  Who wouldn’t be??

Our no-dig garden is working!

This weekend while tidying up in the garden we found a rogue potato so decided to chuck it in the last remaining bit of space in our no-dig vege patch. And low and behold to our delight we discovered all of our layers had turned into a lush moist worm filled soil. No trace at […]
