Published 12 years ago in Permaculture , Video - 0 Comments

Helen Atthowe considers economic benefits (profit!) in organic farming systems vs. permaculture farming systems (aka: conservation farming; agricultural ecology conservation farming).

Benefits include: less labor, less land, zero spraying for insects, less fertilizer, less weeding,

While organic farming focused more on managing crops, soil fertility, reduction of pests, and reduction of chemicals. A permaculture farm is more about managing natural inter-relationships with plants, insects and wildlife.
