In the world of farming, monocultures often take the lead, but they come at a cost: soil exhaustion and a surge in diseases and pests. We're advocates for a better way. By harnessing the power of companion planting and taking cues from permaculture, you can unlock a myriad of benefits, turning your garden into a bustling hub of biodiversity. This approach not only champions robust vegetable growth but also creates inviting niches for insects and critters like hedgehogs. Plus, the symbiotic layout of plants ensures you get the most out of every inch, boosting yields without taxing the soil. It's a step closer to genuine self-sufficiency.
