I am going to relocate soon in dubai.
I want to grow a veggie garden despite the sandy soil and the summer heat (50°c)
I plan to grow my greens inside but i would like to transform the beach in the garden in a fruit forest.
Do you have advices to prepare the soil?
I was thinking about removing the top layer, put some organic matters and then place back a mix of sand, compost, potting soil and vermiculite.
And I plan to water with an irrigation system of grey water under a mulch layer
Thanks for your advices
there is a farm near my farm in Giza Egypt where it reach 40 c in summer of 20 acres of veggi , and they are doing just great ,they use drip irrigation but not in permaculture , i think you should give it a try in a small scale , using huglekultur , by the way agriculture books used to tell us it won't work in our region but they proved wrong
It would give a normal human mental abilities to rival mine. To think it is just a tiny ad:
