✨✨Tropical mami and desert dadi. ✨✨Cold days in CO mean garden breaks, papayas, and an indoor tropical paradise #greenhouse at DBG. 🌺💜 I have a garden plot here and my little green babies are loving this cool weather ☺️ 🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱
#permaculture principle 1: OBSERVE and INTERACT 👁👁👁👁👁👁
Mmm reminds me of #yoga. My brother and I bought a house a year ago and so I’ve been observing and interacting with the environment around it, rather than anxiously beginning to design new systems. Not every problem and system will be solved immediately, it requires so much #patience . 🙏 🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱💗
A few things that I have observed : existing systems, major weed and questionable invasive plant over growth, happy happy little critters, weather patterns, #microclimates , sun patterns, soil quality, cat visitors and so many other details.
Year two will be about rebuilding the soil using methods like #solarization 🌞 (laying tarps over weeds for months at a time in the middle of the summer heat and sun), then #sheetmulching and #bioremediation (growing plants like sunflowers and hemp to remove heavy metals)...no need to use toxic chemicals like the 👿 evil #roundup spray that’s poisoning our planet and water (just google the lawsuits). 🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎
Rather than working against the earth in a destructive way, #permies , implement systems designed to #regenerate the earth and community to live seamlessly with the natural world... Now I can get behind that! 🌎
I believe #sustainable practices are not enough... #regenerativepractices are what I can get behind!
