I'm very excited to announce that early sign-up to the next experiment is now open!
Given the love of growing food amongst you all and the interest in finding ways to grow that can help improve our environments, this one is going to test out a regenerative growing approach that lacks widespread evidence at the scale most of us grow at. It will compare growing three crops in combination (a polyculture) to growing each separately (in monoculture).
Which three crops?
What do you need to get started?
What will you discover?
The experiment will officially open on 1st May*.
Not coincidentally, that is in the last week of the related free online course Living Soils, Growing Food. In this course, we consider regenerative growing practices and help you learn how to explore your own growing site and approaches. We also cover some of the first steps for setting up the experiment.
If you want to get a head start and connect with like-minded growers, I look forward to seeing you there.
- You can start it up until the end of June, depending on your growing conditions.
Kind regards, Naomi
