Permaculture by a different name I think:  http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20190507-weeds-a-surprising-way-to-fight-climate-change

The article describes “natural sequence farming” and how it recharges ground water, improves soil, and grows plants, including weeds, that act as a carbon sink.

Whatever they call it, if it leads people in the right direction, I like it.

I'm a big fan of Peter Andrews; he has inspired my work on our place here in TX.
 
It will give me the powers of the gods. Not bad for a tiny ad:
