    Hi John, You talk about irigation, and bug picking, but Paul from Back to eden (full tour 5h lengt), says he do not water his trees from 30+ years, the wood chips does the irrigation work, the earth is always wet inside he showes. And bugs, there is no bugs if the plant is strong, and boy hes plans strong! full of water, so he does not pick bugs himself. He does as little as put seeds and get fruits, and cut trees. weeds also no problem, all explained in 5h full tour, its just craaazy. Best Regards.

    I completely agree with this guy. Be a person don't be just a consumer.

    As a side not when using this manure/bedding mix adding mushroom spawn of several species can significantly add to the bioremediation of a lot of the things you listed as the negative possible things that can be found in the manure. It's very worth reading into to. You may be surprised how amazing it can be to levels of any possible toxins.

    Hi John,

    Does it matter what type of wood chips?

  • Robert Stockley 1 year ago

    MRSA infections associated with Crop Field Application of Manure, and Risk of (MRSA) infection. MRSA is caused by a type of staph bacteria that's become resistant to many of the antibiotics used to treat ordinary staph infections…just GOOGLE MRSA and Manure.

    This was fascinating. I've never tried using rock dust, but want to try it. The only type I can find locally is Azomite. Would that work to add minerals/enrich the compost in this gardening method?

    John, I would love to see a video where you tour Paul Gautschi's garden. He is the guy who started the 'Back to Eden' movement. I am very interested to see your impressions of his garden, soil, and how the fruit tastes to you. I started watching gardening videos with you, and am very curious to see your opinions once you visit his garden in person! Thanks

    Do you think that wood ashes are comparable to using wood chips?

  • Dean Gouramanis 1 year ago

    16:32 I made a similar garden this year with wood chips over the grass. I did not till the soil, but I did use a spade shovel to 'peel back' the grass layer. The result was a bunch of sod pieces around 8" squared, and three inches thick. I piled them up in strips around the perimeter to form a neat wall around the woodchips. Looks great and it's free. I call it the living wall method, because the grass roots hold it together.

    Actually according to the "Dr. John R. Christopher herbalist seminars" on YouTube, in the Bible in Genesis it says something to the effect that the fruit shall be your food and the leaves shall be your medicine. Back then, between the times of Adam to Noah, people lived almost 1000 years. It wasn't until after the flood that eating animals was permitted. Even then they were only supposed to be eaten during times of flood, famine or winter (when fruit isn't available).  There even used to be a "Book of Herbs" in the Bible which was later taken out – probably due to the beginnings of dumbing people down and/or taking away their ability to care for themselves as easily.
