Followup lessons from on high include how deeply and in which layer to plant seed in the soil, not the mulch on top and that big wood chips will exhaust the soil of nitrogen as they slowly break down. What Gautschi does is keep his soil protected under a layer of composted chips, shavings, and saw dust. And this results in something of a Xeric miracle. He never waters either his fruit trees or his vegetables. And he gets superb harvests. Gautschi claims to use nothing but a rake — not a spade, not a fork, not a hoe — in his garden.
Gautschi is also expert at composting. He shows why adding a bunch of organic material to soil results in hard-pack at the end of the season. Hint: the answer has to do with having a variety of different-sized material in your compost to help hold oxygen and moisture.

The cool, often cloudy climate helps keep evaporation down. Yet his garden truly is a miracle and his method above reproach. He keeps wide rows between his plants so that he can run the roto-tiller through. Still, in a garden -specific way, this is a very charming and inspiring film. Mulches are important but there is a proper and simple way to use them. Gautschi himself is the most entertaining component of the film.
Let us know what you think. Water savings? By Dr. This video really inspired me and after watching it I called my local tree cutting service and was able to get two truckloads of wood-chips dropped on my driveway for free and wheel barreled them on my landscape. The great thing about the wood chips is that they are waste and most companies will give you all you want. I plan on adding more three or four times a year.
I am convinced that Paul makes load of sense and that this is a crucial part of the equation for creating healthy soil to produce healthy plants. He says that anyone who opens up that door, he'll come in and sup with. Have you ever had a supper with someone with no conversation?
The Lord is a wonderful man to talk to. Once you strike up a friendship with him, life will never be the same.
About Epic Gardening
I would like more information about your work with artists. I have a very artistic teen, and if she really wants to pursue that course perhaps she can learn how to do so without having to pursue career choices she hates in order to pay bills. Just will never understand why so many people are so sensitive and become hugely offended towards individuals right to believe in what ever they like to believe in.
If you celebrate science it's all good, if you celebrate the creator, all good.. Enjoy the knowledge and the learning to be had from the inspirational message contained in this video, that's if you can allow yourself to stop being so judgmental towards your fellow man. I'm confused, one guy says plant in the woodchips not the soil then later on another guy says you have to plant in the soil beneath the woodchips?
Never use woodchips in a garden , first off , the wood may contain a list of hazardous chemical , Arsenic , etc. As an organic gardener , we use hay and straw as a mulch , wood chips take alot and i mean ALOT of nitrogen to decompose , while stealing it from your plants , Use shredded leaves , hary and straw , it is the best!
While I don't consider myself religious, and was initially reluctant when bible versus started cropping up, there is some very good information in this documentary. I could have gone without the "worship music" montage right at the beginning, but the wood chipping montage was actually very enjoyable. When Paul starts speaking to other people using the same enthusiastic but overtly religious tone, it starts to feel like a very clever and enjoyable character study.
I have watched similar farming documentaries that take a Zen Buddhist perspective, and I find them entertaining and informative in the same way.

If not for the bible-memorization, Paul would actually seem more like a Deist than a Christian, which I feel like I can relate to. He seems like a very genuine and sincere person, and the religious qualities of this film are not outright evangelical - except for, unfortunately, the very beginning. As someone who considered changing channels after the first 10 minutes, I'm glad I stuck with it. Intermixed with the religious references is some really good farming advice. Wood chip farming has some really good science behind it if you look. People, the reason why these men mention God so much is because He is the most important thing!
He is the one who gave us the soil and everything that comes from it. He supplies us everything we need so He needs to be glorified properly. I commend these men for giving Him the glory he deserves. We need more people like them in the famring industry. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. HE is the most important thing. The ground is not a living organism.

It may have living organisms in it. Nature has provided us with waterfalls and butterflies, but also with typhus and tornadoes. You want to wax poetic, write poetry. The wonderfully designed world came with smallpox and earthquakes. Because some of us are intelligent we can discern useful order amid the chaotic reality.
That talent promotes survival. Mysticism does not. An omniscient, omnipotent, benevolent super-being allows children to starve, plagues to rage, and his worshipers to murder, rape, steal and torture in his name, and he does nothing about it. He even forgives it all if you believe nonsense, grovel, beg, flatter, and, most importantly, fill the collection plate.
You'll have to bear with me if I don't like him and don't respect him.
The Theory Behind Back to Eden Gardening
Exactly what bad behavior produced smallpox? All the babies and children it killed and scarred must have been extremely wicked. Religion comforts you and relieves your pain enough so that you don't have to deal with your real problems. You are still deluding yourself. You clearly lack the understanding as do most organized religions that the Bible offers. If you actually read the Bible and studied it thoroughly, you would know why the things are so terrible across the planet currently, why there is corruption in and outside of religion and why we destroy the earth and our fellow man.
Believe it or not but there is a religion out there that refuses to involve themselves in political affairs, go to war, enforce any kind of collections, does not steal, teaches Bible truths free of charge, respects the marriage arrangement - the list goes on. Once again research it. Its never logical to form an opinion on a subject until you have researched it fully.
However I do understand your harsh opinions as this system is designed to discourage individuals from forming a personal relationship with our Grand Creator. As a matter of fact, I have read the bible. I even took a couple of courses on it in college. If there is an omnipotent, omnipotent, benevolent god, then religion is unnecessary. He won't need or want anyone begging, whining, flattering, and making sacrifices to cajole him into doing the right thing. Reading the Bible and understanding it are very different and you clearly have not understood even the basic premise of the truth it contains.
You are right, reading and understanding it are very different. You mention the 'truth' it contains, how about mentioning the lies it also contains? And this results in something of a Xeric miracle.
