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.
