How to start a food forest garden is a question I get more then any other. Today I go through in detail how to start a Permaculture Back to Eden Garden. This style of gardening is not till, and works with nature rather then against it. Investments are key to no till Gardening, every year fertility increases and so does production!

Excellent idea using the contractors paper. I have used both newspaper and cardboard and agree with you on their drawbacks. I will be giving this a try.

david zabel says:

I have an orchard that is on a southern exposure but also on a slope, if I use contractors paper will I need to Terrace the slope to keep the wood chips in place when it rains? I want to use the orchard because it's fenced to keep deer out.

Well Prepped Pantry says:

Remember as wood chips are in the early process of breaking down, they consume huge amounts of nitrogen..so.. you'll need to compensate for that through some other means, if you're using them in and around plants that require nitrogen for their growth: i.e. leaf greens.

This Princess Lilian says:

thanks for this video. its concise, precise and enlightening. Now I 'm inspired about not mixing mulch with my soil to avoid Nitrogen tie up.

Amber Rain says:

Excellent vid- Thanks for the info.

Sarah Kaplan says:

Just found your channel, and I really like your videos. I love that you're in NJ and say "wuter" for "water" (like my mom). Did you plan water flow before mulching everything/planning your garden at the very beginning? I hesitate to mulch first b/c I don't have a whole system design, and I have a nice gradual slope, and I think maybe I need some swales or something–trying to learn and plan first before mulching. What kind of plan did you have in place before getting started?

Wendy M says:

Excellent teaching James!

kiran says:

Hi James, in our area we dont get wood chips. I do get wood shavings from carpenters. I can get straw or hay as well. I can even get just leaves partially broken down as mulch. Can you please suggest which one will be best? Thanks, Kiran

Teryl Ozolin says:

Great info on types of wood chips and when to lay them. I have clay soil in the high mountain desert, so the info about prepping clay soil was especially helpful

Robyn Latham says:

Holla from appalachia

Amanda Anderson says:

I need chickens. Here in the desert the soil has to be rebuilt. We have the compost but need bug control and manure.

Craig Wilson says:

Keep killin it bro

Christopher G says:

this is great, will subscribe. please tell how much it costs per square foot to start

Homesteading the Rivers Edge says:

I have tons and tons of pine needles. Is this okay to use as a mulch in a vegetable garden?

santryl says:

Hello James, thank you for the information. Where are you located? I need to know which hardiness zone you are in so that I can tailor my choices to match my local. Again, thank you

Shannon Michael says:

Absolutely love the Video. So much Info. We are starting our Food Forest as a Windbreak and for Privacy on the West edge of our Homestead. Thanks so much for pointing us in the Right Direction

Vinnette Pope says:

Thank you for sharing

Betty Garden says:

it's great, but wood chip is heavy, but otherwise, everybody can do it.

my downsized life says:

awesome teacher !!!!! thank you Β soooooo much !

Andrew Lockwood says:

Useful, as I'm actually at this step.

Tammi Day says:

James, I'm not sure you should tell people to use their own manure, unless you are sure to let them know you mean from their own ANIMALS… πŸ˜‰

lime410 says:

Great video. That’s a big help!

Pj Langhoff says:

Thanks so much for this! Love the teachings. BUT please maybe don't wave your hands around so much as it is very distracting! πŸ™‚

Fatemah Dashti says:

Any advice for a beginner like me who lives in a very hot climate?
