What is organic permaculture? “Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature”
Americans are the fattest nation on earth! American food are banned in 30 countries? (FOOD BANNED)
How are educated Americans? Yes, eat more chemical and get more stupid! Genetically Engineered Food, Carrageen, Hormone-infused and antibiotic-infused beef and Milk, toxic energy drinks, artificial coming (generated from petroleum) is your daily intake.
Use your brains! Read the levels to see what you are eating. Do not die young and sick…. Get into organic permaculture. Do not trust ORGANIC stamps USFDA approved, because if the producer do not use two out 100s other chemicals the food gets approved and leveled at very high prices. Grow your own or purchase from the trusted permaculture local specialists.
I have being eating 100% Organic from the day I was born. Per arrival to this country in mid 90s and after eating from the local supermarkets, I would puke, spend weeks in the bathroom. For the fun of it, I even held a survey, after eating Mac Donald’s, I would spend three weeks in the bathroom, after eating Wendy’s, it will be 2 weeks, etc. The high class and super expensive fine dining in Beverly Hills, labeled Kosher / Organic went very well. Thus, a lot of my food came at hefty prices from abroad. Yes, being healthy is very expensive and most can’t afford.
Is there is solution? Can one get a good quality food at low prices? Absolutely.
I began my own organic permaculture edible garden. A good soil, water and a lot of sweat that all it takes!
The break down of organic permaculture. Have I mentioned do not mess with the nature? Just let it be!
Most of soil is sand, that is what most of South Western Florida is. I have calculated that it will take me about 4 to 10 years to produce the high quality soil. Thus, the first step was to is purchase the organic soil at the hefty price, so I could start to plant.
I have saved every egg peel, every grade to coffee and tea, and left over organic vegetables. I would chaise after the lawn mower of my gardener collecting all the grass clippings. I was not allowing him to take a leaf of my property. My gardener and I had several fights. He was amused of how a big city girl, coming from the desert of California was telling him of how it is done! To his suggestion that I need to buy a mulch in home depot, I pointed him down to the pile I was standing on, made of the leafs and wood, branches droppings. The compost bin went up within a week. No fancy, plastic containers are needed. Just use chicken wire and a couple of sticks!
Water: Start to plant right before the rainy season! The plants that like dry environment plant on high levels and the plants that love water plant on low levels. Oh, Florida!
Design: Integrate rather then segregate! Layers: the canopy, the trees under the canopy, the shrub, the plants, the herbs, the leafs, the top service of the soil. Just observe the nature and how it flourishes without human interference and you will succeed. Divide your property in areas and conquer one by one. Divide and conquer, as Napoleon said, and you will succeed!
Temperature: 365 day paradise! I got lucky in that department.
Seeds and Clippings: I do cary clippers with me all the time, for you never know what you come across that it absolutely mush have. I try to clip local plants as much as I can. What grows around in nature will grow in my garden. As per seeds, I order them at hight prices on Amazon, making sure that they come from abroad. Thought my international connections, I have being given seeds from Philippines, China, Russia and Costa Rica.
Sweat: Gardening is labor intense. Carrying huge bags of soil, digging holes, dragging 6 feet tall trees to plant, picking leaf, picking leafs, picking leafs… Who needs GYM?
Security: The neighbors are always there to check on my progress. Most shake their heads, for each time they turn around a new plants are there. Also, I have installed the 24/7 surveillance cameras, so I know who is picking my fruits of labor. Hey, we live in 2017!
One year progress:
The first two trees have planted in April 2016, and then in August, 2016 I planted about 30 fruit trees. I was building the canopy. Watering those after the end of the rainy season was brutal. Learning my lesson, I have arrived in April 2017, right before the rainy season and planted some more:
So far I have:
10 Ferns, 9 jasmine (different variety) 6 aloe (different variety), some edible vegetables and tons of medicinal and edible herbs.
4 Old mango tress, 3 new mango trees, 5 papaya trees, 3 banana, 2 avocado, 2 Plum, Java Plum, jack fruit tree, 2 passion trees, 6 dragon fruit trees, an olive tree, orange tree, 1 old coconut tree and new 4 coconut trees, a fig tree, chaya tree, 2 mulberry tree, a star fruit tree and sour sop! Here is a link to my page about organic herbal garden.
Seeding and clipping: 1000s of seeds are germinating as I am writing this and 100s of clippings are started to strive and about to be ready to plant.
It has being a good one year of creating my organic permaculture Herbal Garden!
I am open to WOOFING! So far, I had one lovely lady helping me with her sweat equity and priceless advice.
Eat healthy, get in shape.
