How's it growin'?

These principles apply to both SFG and non-SFG. I've never been so excited to share something on my YT channel as I am this message. This presentation has been something that has been burning inside of me for a long time. We're talking healthy soil, healthy plants, healthy people, healthy planet

If you're one who wants to skip over everything I talk about leading up to the main topic, I've made it easy by adding chapters in the video's description.



Let's grow together!  Very Happy

Very good presentation. One of the greatest things about SFG is that we use compost to feed the plants. Compost + microbes = healthy soil.

I know your presentation was beyond our beds, but it was worth watching.

Thanks Sanderson! You could probably tell I was quite passionate about this subject. LOL

Thanks for your feedback, and yes, that biology and the compost sure make a difference in soil health!

I am 100% sold on the idea- it works! I had a "dead zone" in my garden that nothing grew in for years. The neighbors were dumping all their automotive chemicals along the fence and it leached to my side. I applied compost, worm castings, kelp slurry to the soil, and inoculated it with beneficial microbes and mycorrhyzea. I covered it with 4" of wood chips and left it fallow for 3 seasons. After winter rains, mushrooms popped up everywhere in the area, then seedlings popped up covering the area with weeds and grasses, which I "tarped" until I was sure that they were dead, then I planted over this with annuals to see what would make it. They are still there and soing great....no more "garden plot of doom".

Nice! It's amazing what we can do when we work with nature! I sure know how frustrating it is when toxins drain from a neighbor's yard. That good biology, especially the mycorrhizal fungi that you added helps to detox the soil. So you did the right thing. Nice work!

Yardslave, Automotive fluid!! Yikes. Good job rehabbing the damaged soil.

In the front flower/shrub beds, we got tired of raking leaves, pulling weeds and trowing handfuls of fertilizer around. I wanted to try BTE so we dumped bags of compost on the ground and covered with about 3" of plain wood chips (plus some ramial chips) and we haven't had to feed the azaleas, camellias, gardenias and flowers for years. We do have to keep topping with new wood chips as the old ones at the soil line break down into compost. Very Happy One benefit is that we can use 1/4" driplines for watering as we are on water restrictions with meters.
