We just can't say enough good things about Craig and his family, owners of @alpenglowfarms707 in Southern Humboldt County. They were kind enough to have the Solful crew up for a visit to witness the beginning of harvest season! Muddy Shoe Sourcing: By getting to know the farmers and creators of the products we carry, we’ve witnessed first-hand the care, pride, thoughtfulness, art, and skill that these people put into their respective crafts. And it allows us to confidently stand behind the products we offer. We can't wait to get some of their signature strains back in stock, so keep an eye out for these in the coming weeks!

Follow this great group of real egalitarian women and men from all over the world! @world_citizens_for_saudi_women . . . Double standards are similar to racism. Is it possible for us to not be racist ar all? No, it isn't - our brains are wired in such a way that we are made to recognize patterns. In addition to that, most of us grow up in families and environments where we encounter only our own skin color for the most part. Without knowing anything about three people, we will feel most comfortable with the ones that resemble us the most. But that doesn't mean that we can't actively fight this reflex when we need to. We can make the effort to get to know those people and we can get past the skin color. It is the same with double standards. There is no problem in asking males for help to carry something and to hold the door open for women. But if you know that a female is very athletic or that a male is not very physically fit, then you can go ahead and ask them both for help. You can be a nice person and instead of ridiculing either of them, give constructive criticism on how they both improve physically. Or you can simply not be an asshat because somebody is different from your ideal male or female image, your ideal black or white person, or because somebody's hobbies are different from your ideal hobbies. Live and let live. . . . #doublestandards #stopdoublestandards #sds #racism #sexism #egalitarianism #egalitarian #secularism #secular #transcultural #multicultural #polyculture #intercultural #globalism #love #pride #islam #muslim #allah #muhammad #religionofpeace #judaism #chrisianity

New Micro Mango Orchard Tour parts 1&2 out now on IGTV ! With special appearance by the jungle kitty. We are planting about ten cultivars of boutique mango in around 1100 square feet. Some of the trees already in are Angie, Rosigold, Sweet Tart, Fairchild, Coconut Cream, Carrie, and Pina Colada along with Aurea Canistel. We will hopefully be adding a few additional cultivars very soon. The spacing is pretty tight in this gallery mango planting but i hope to show what is possible in a small space with proper management. In this video I talk a little about some of the tips and management tricks passed on to me by Dr. Richard Campbell and about some of our plans going forward. We still have a lot of work to do in this area but I thought this was a good time to give an update. #miamifruit #mango #miamimango #permaculture #permaculturedesign #foodforest #polyculture #homesteading #permacultureeducation #ethicallifestyle #slowliving #urbanfarmstead #regenerativelifestyle #tropicalgarden #ethicalliving #urbanfarming #growyourown #selfsufficiency #selfreliance #permaculturegarden #fullcirclefarming #earthcare #patterningforfertility #miamipermaculture #regenerativelifestyle #agroforestry #chemicalfree

Wild rice! A year ago we sowed a seriously generous load of rice from Maine via @crookedy_knife Luke Boushee. Come June it seemed to have all come up. Yesterday we harvested enough for a meal while letting the rest reseed to build up a new local seed bank - genetic resource - human food security and wildlife food supply. Maybe next year and beyond this could replace all or a large part of our grain calories. Hopefully this will be a new option for people in the denuded hills here where we have more water than fertile soil, along with the other promising crops we harvested today - Siberian ginseng, autumn olive, walnut, seedling seaberry, #shizandraberry , apple and (a branch-breaking year) pears. #nativeplants #foodsupply #polyculture #permaculture #rewildyourfood #tendingthewild #bethesuccessionyouwishtosee #deliberatedispersion #exsituconservation

The pistils on the "Up Rise" (Papaya x Goo Tang) are a yellow-green that contrasts interestingly with the purple undertones. The nose is a layering of Papaya sweetness with an earthy Goo Tang funk. 💚🌱💚 . . #Oregon #Cannabis #Sungrown #Connect #People #Plants #Soil #Planet #Regenerate #Earth #Support #Awareness #Diversity #Life #Love #Health #Happiness #Cosmic #Force #DEMpure #CertifiedKind #CleanGreen #Permaculture #Polyculture #Biodynamic #420 #WeShouldSmoke #Marijuana #Ganja

My little Geraldton Wax is certainly putting on a lovely show. It is of those plants that was on the list of plants I wanted to incorporate into my garden simply because I love them. Having fond memories of them in my grandmother’s garden when I was a child. I wasn’t sure how the plant would cope with the conditions but it is doing really well, welcome flowers at this time of year loved by the bees and just so pretty, it will be useful as a cut flower when the plant has grown larger. #geraldtonwax #australiannativeplants #pink #garden #pollinatorgarden #cutflowergarden #organic #savethebees #newgarden #gardeningaustralia #flowers #polyculture #westernaustraliannativeplants

Little backyard edible paradise in the low desert. Today vs. July 2016 vs. November 2015 when we first finished the backyard Sunken Garden and started planting. Our Sunken Garden has really grown and filled in. Fig trees in the Mediterranian Garden are growing into good size. We have managed to pack in a mass amount of diversity of edible plants and pollinator friendly perennials. We have about 1,500 sq ft of plantable space on a 7,000 sq ft property. It does not take a lot of space to have a productive and enjoyable garden. We hope the photos we share of our progress can inspire you to do the same. We feel the green space helps keep our property cooler than our neighbors. We look forward to sit under some of these fruit trees as they mature and gain size and pick fruit right off of them while sitting and relaxing! . . #epicgardening #growyourown #highdensityplanting #foodforest #permaculture #backyardorchardculture #urbanfoodforest #polyculture #growforwildlife #certifiedwildlifehabitat #ediblelandscaping #eatyouryard #homegrown #growfoodnotlawns

Her şeyin uyumlu bir şekilde var olduğu bir #polikültür bahçesi ve her öğe arasında yararlı bir ilişki var. 🌻 Cornwall'daki Eden projesindeki sebze bahçesi inanılmaz bir ilham kaynağı. ******** A #polyculture garden where everything exists harmoniously and there is a beneficial relationship between every element. The veggie garden at the Eden project in Cornwall is an incredible inspiration.

Small trees on the grasslands at Finca Astoria all bend in the same direction due to the prevailing winds. Los pequeños arboles en las praderas de Finca Astoria todos se doblan en la misma dirección debido a los vientos imperantes. #ecofriendly #ecovillage #ecoaldea #ökodorf #panamá #sustainability #sostenible #Nachhaltigkeit #permaculture #permacultura #Permakultur #nationalpark #nature #Natur #naturaleza #abundancia #Gemeinschaft #antón #travelblogger #ruralliving #camping #outdoors #ecotravel #ökoreisen #sustainabletravel #naturallife #coclé #polyculture #nomore9to5 #escape9to5

In starting a new garden, I have given a lot of consideration to each and every plant that goes in. In such a small space every inch counts, I use a basic rule of three for my plant selections (there are ofcourse a couple of exceptions to this rule for plants that I just simply love) to make the cut, plants have to either productive, for food, tea or cut flowers. Be attractive to beneficials, strappy leaves for lizards, nectar and pollen for the bees and they have to work harmoniously and be a good fit for the space. I have two main areas currently one is semi shaded so there I am going for a tropical look, the other is a true cottage garden. In giving this consideration to all plants, I have been reminded that although my favourite flowers tend to be the showy gladiolus of summer and the gorgeous irises of spring, the plants that make my garden work are the simple flowers that keep the pollinators visiting, the hover flies coming in and laying eggs which hatch into larvae that will destroy the aphids that are currently attempting to destroy my roses. When I stopped to give that some thought, I realised just how pretty these little plants really are. Alllysum with its lovely scent is a magnet for beneficials and nepeta or cat mint, which I have underneath an apricot rose in an unashamed cottage garden cliche is frequented by bees each day. They are what makes it all work. #polyculture #alyssum #catmint #nepeta #garden #newgarden #flowers #companionplanting #organic #pesticidefree #urbangarden #smallgarden #ediblegarden #oldfashionedplants #cottagegarden #growyourown #savethebees #pollinators #gardenguardians #purple #whiteflowers

One of my favorite polycultures in the main garden this summer ☝ Marigolds in the foreground act as an aromatic border, keeping out weeds and critters. Heirloom peanuts behind them add nitrogen to the soil and help loosen any compaction near the surface. Behind the peanuts are a couple of rows of heirloom buckwheat, which adds organic matter to the soil, acts as a cover crop going into fall, and provides late season pollen for the beneficial insects. At the back, there are several Black Krim tomatoes, scrambling up bamboo teepees... and waiting patiently for enough sun and warmth to ripen. They have been slowly ripening for a few weeks now, but this week's storms have brought them to a standstill. . That said, we are very fortunate to have been spared (so far) from much of the rain that was forecasted for our area as a result of Hurricane Florence. That may change early next week, as she loops back up the east coast. . Not that we need any more rain. If you swipe across, you'll see some of the rainfall counts that have been recorded by the University of Delaware since April. Local recordings have shown isolated areas of even higher rainfall. I know ours has been higher at times. Three feet of rain.... we're basically experiencing at least double what we normally would at times. As the University put it in a crop update earlier today, two to six inches of rain in one day feels like the norm after this year. Hurricane level rainfall is more or less what we have been living with all summer. Bless all the growers this year 💚 it's been a rough one, and we're still out there doing this thing!! 💪

When people ask me what I feed my plants I say “I don’t, I feed the microorganisms in the soil that in-turn feed the plants”.Plants cannot take up nutrient on their own under normal circumstances. In chemical agriculture plants are forced to drink nutrient which leads to a litany of problems. . Plants have two kinds of root systems: feeder roots, the tiny hair roots near the surface, that take nutrient from the soil biota and larger tap roots that drink essentially. Microorganisms and fungi take nutrient from the air, organic matter, and rotting rock and trade it to the plants for sugars. . So how do we get high numbers of soil organisms? One source is high quality compost made with a diversity or ingredients. I like to look at compost as my inoculum and deep mulch from diverse sources as my fertilizer. We can not have a wholistic system if we don’t have all the players at the table. . Here I’m demonstrating the Berkeley method of composting championed by @geofflawtononline I can produce 1-1.5 cubic yards of compost in 18 days. And the quality and number of microorganisms is very high. Want to learn this method for yourself?

From the same rootstock of these we’ve transplanted nearly 20 ‘guineo chino’ and ‘guineo enano’ to our experimental afforestation area on Finca Astoria.

Not a very pretty photo but good to know if you'd like to have peach trees. I was shopping today and found some dwarfs that looked healthy but had globs of clear goo on some branches. Sometimes this is just due to injury, but check the base of the plant to make sure you don't have an infestation of borers as you see here on the left. You can control and eliminate these naturally, but I wasn't about to buy these guys. . . . #peachtree #borers #pestproblems #stonefruits #plantinfall #polyculture #permaculture
