Jared Smith joins us from California to talk reintegrating permaculture into the market garden mindset, productive hedgerows, lasagna gardening, and the art of using what you have on hand. Jared is a little hard to find online, and his work definitely merits further exploration, so we’ll be posting a video collection about his farm later in the week. Shout out to Steven Cornett for bringing him to our attention. If you know of any no/low-till growers, especially those one the 10+ scale, please send us a message! We’re always on the lookout for different and innovative ways people are growing goof veg while reducing tillage.
