    I’d love to learn from this guy. Unfortunately, I can’t afford to fly all
    the way to Canada, at the moment.?

    Pure abundance. We live on a five acre farm and I’m focused on a small 20
    tree orchard and creating a self sustainable system. I would love to visit
    your farm. It looks amazing!!! I’m working on creating our own abundance.
    I love that you share your abundance as well. I hope to do the same. I
    love your message that we need to share with nature as well. My garden is
    young but here is a link to tour my organic garden. Hope to take it to the
    next level this year, https://youtu.be/8yixvKER1K8?

    Stefan has a two hour movie called “The Permaculture Orchard” where he
    explains in detail his farm. It’s one of the most educational videos I’ve
    even seen. Brilliant. ?

    Looking for suggestion(s here: We are a Zone 5b/SW Michigan homestead with
    flat land, sandy soil, sun (some afternoon shade). sometimes heavy winds
    off Lake Michigan. We have plans for several large triangle beds planted
    with: 1 Heritage semi-dwarf apple, 1 Heritage semi-dwarf pear (no plums
    available from the place who is grafting our heritage trees this winter.)
    Need idea(s) for third tree/deep rooted/nitrogen fixer fruit
    tree/shrub…. We also plan a

    Oppenheimer Ranch will mimic Sobkowiak’s successful triad succession
    methodology. NAP triads (nitrogen,apple,plum) grown in conjunction with
    complimentary under-story guilds yield epic abundance with zero input.
    Every member of the ecosystem benefits with this model. Join our journey:

    One of the most well done, clearly explained video I’ve seen on the process
    of shifting from mono to perma principles, and the benefits. Thank you!?

    Miracle farms.. it seems a miracle, but it is so natural – working with the
    earth and keeping eachother healthy.. Permaculture may not be a correct
    name.. who cares about that.
    This is how it has been done, and needs to done.. *and it is so easy to
    take this matter into your own hands..* Traditional farming, that what goes
    hand in hand with Monsanto, is destroying the earth and our habitat.?

    I’ve watched this three times now. I love the attitude of “Why Not” and
    “let’s live for a greater purpose” than purely making money as a business.
    Yes, it needs to make cash flow for sure, without it, the orchard biz dies
    for sure … But I think this wise gentleman knows to let profit and
    abundance become a by product of that clear decision to live with and for a
    higher purpose, which includes a clear plan/system to benefit others
    including some “pesties”… Awesome. Big picture, stewardship thinkers are
    legends. Thanks so so much for sharing this Possible . Org. Big Smiles from
    me, David.?

    Could you please tell me what the elevation is in Cazaville and the type of

    Not just shelf life, but most importantly, quantity, size! American
    commercial strawberries are basicly tasteless, no aroma either.?
