Permaculture Principles In A Polyculture Orchard

Hello!  As we know permaculture principles are based on natural ecosystems.  So how can we use permaculture principles in an orchard.  In a polyculture orchard we can follow the same principles of a natural forest.

Creating a canopy and the under story of plants with a diversity of plant species.  This way we don't need pesticides and chemicals to reduce pests and diseases in the garden.

In this next video, Anneke explains 3 permaculture principles in a polyculture orchard:

1.  Producing No Waste  2.  Creating diversity  3.  Retaining the yield

Think about how you can apply permaculture principles in your life?

Enjoy the video and let me know what do you think!
