Virtual Workshop: Introduction to Veggie Gardening in South Florida - Video 4: Summer
Video four is our "summer" section and it aims to introduce you to the wild and weird world of tropical perennial forest gardening. We start with an hour long lecture-style discussion of the following topics:
-why is summer growing so different/ challenging
-what plants will thrive in the summer months
-introduction to permaculture
-what is a perennial food forest
-how to design a food forest guild
After that we move on to conversation about cover cropping with farmer Chris French of French Farms, who is currently cover cropping his vegetable fields to improve his soil quality and fertility. then we grab a shovel and a mulberry plant and plant a tree for you, so you can see just how we do it for optimum transplant success.
