How Permaculture Can Double Your Garden Produce #210 In today’s episode Becky shows you how to make a permaculture garden. Kathy Wonderful. Could you use the "used"hay from the animals instead of the wood chips? Becky Hi Kat, yes I did use (pasture scraps) hay and manure. I love the wood chips because they break down slow, and I needed to make it deep. I also love the card board and paper, like my circle a word books when I finish.Becky Simply Bonkers! Kind of like lasagna gardening, with a little bit of a twist. I may do this next year when the garden is done producing to compost through the winter. Thank you for the video blog!
