So I found this great video series on you tube explaining how to use nature make soil.

He uses diagrams and even a demonstration to simplify his ideas so most people can understand.

This is the link to the first video.


Enjoy

Wow, these are fantastic beginner videos. He's clearly put a lot of thought into making these into the best teaching videos possible to make the whole idea accessible to new gardener/farmers. Thank you

To be honest, I've never used wood chips in such a gardening way, only within the commercial and home landscape application. I never have to use fertilzers in the landscape as the micro-organisms and insects which live in the soil and under the mulch. I have often had to apply three six inch layers of mulch a year under my landscaping because the breakdown was so rapid and the trees and shrubs growth was phenomenal.
 
No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better. This time, do it with this tiny ad:
Tomatoes! Ha! Anyone can grow that. Amaze your neighbors, grow your own shirt!
