Cheap Bamboo Chicken Tractor & Rainwater Harvesting - Permaculture Practices

Permaculture Practices - This video addresses harvesting rain water and using a chicken tractor (not a tractor, tiller, or plow) for GARDENING. The photos contained are experiments by a "new" permaculturist located in between DeRidder and Sugartown Louisiana.
Professional Permaculturist model their gardens after nature with little if any use of the water hose or tractor, and no chemical insectisides or fertilizers; their videos can be found on Youtube by keying in: permaculture, Geoff Lawton, Bill Mollison, Fukuoka, Ruth Stout, and Sepp H. I would especially encourage your to watch Geoff's Lawton's video "Greening the Desert" if you have any doubts as to the effectiveness of this gardening method.

Permacuture is good for the earth and people; and goes beyond organic. It's an entire system and lifestyle. YOU can control what you put into your and your family's body and make sure it's safe, nutritious, won't hurt the earth, and even have surplus to share with others. It also provides a peace of mind knowing that your garden is full of food regardless of what is going on in the world or your local neighborhood.
One of my favorite Permaculturist, Ruth Stout, confessed to doing very little work; no weeding, fertilzing, plowing, etc. and yet was able to feed two people. Her 3 videos are filled with detailed info and a tour and demostration of her gardeing methods.

This is doable. Even if you only have a balcony or small patio. You can grown something today; even if it's just planting seeds in small containers and sitting next to a sunny window in your home.
