My latest direction in regenerative gardening is gardening against extinction, or gardening for wildlife, while protecting food plant diversity. Of course the solution is to use native plants for both and there are many many reasons for it that I hope to outline with time.
Below that you will find some elements of regenerative gardening due to new experiences after the following: the 4 regenerative questions series, and below that the 'how to' series with 12 simple tips for regenerative gardening. These 12 tips were the first project for the regenerative gardening blog, a series of articles designed to make it really easy to do regenerative gardening, one task at a time. This comes in response to a demand for simple and practical suggestions, tips and activities. I wrote a polemical article titled poly-regeneration, but based on the reaction, I see that many people prefer practical solutions on how to do it, rather than theory.
Tap on the green text in each entry to go straight to the blog posts. The practical, how to series sometimes duplicates some topics I've written on in greater depth, so I will link you to those topics as we go.
Please let me know if you have any questions, comments or stories to share on gardening, permaculture, regenerative agriculture, food forests, natural gardening, do nothing gardening, observations about pests and diseases, foraging, dealing with and using weeds constructively, composting and going offgrid.
