My chickens don't really care whatnI bring them once they are in the dog food but either way -
Moving the fence once a week or every 10 days is far too much work in our rocky soil...
I can see that I have not explained myself very well. We plan on planting trees between the olives - on contour - around 800/hectare: Figs, Mulberry, Pomegranate, Dates, apricot, peach, apples, wild pears, prickly pear, oak, pistachio, almond, walnut, pine nut, laurel, juniper, acacia, jaquarand, mimosa, honeylocust (ideas are very welcome here). Underneath blackberries, artichoke, rosemary, lavendler, grapes, n-fixing wines. I would plant in fenced rows with small pasture between - for animals and possibly a grain crop (but only in the long run when soil has greatly improved).
I will try out the vertiver grass and see how it does - thank you
