Limestone Permaculture - Tour with Brett Cooper

Brett Cooper and his family, of Limestone Permaculture Farm, hosted HOGS for our September Field Day. Brett took us on a tour of his farm, sharing his permaculture knowledge and explaining how and why he has created his farm to uniquely suit his property. He showed us his swales for growing fruit trees where Brett keeps a biomass groundcover of nasturtiums in winter, and pumpkins in summer. Eventually, when the swale trees are fully grown, the ducks will live there and be able to forage for bugs and snails. Brett grows arrowroot and other edible underground tubers in his pond. The pond is also a good habitat for frogs and other beneficial wildlife. A particular point of interest
