Picking vegetables at the Eden Project - St Blazey, Cornwall, England by franieK
Now THIS is what a polyculture garden looks like! Look at how healthy everything is!
- The onions interplanted sporadically keep away a number of pests
- Nothing is concentrated enough to attract a plague of specialised agricultural pests
- The loss of one crop to disease or pests is not catastrophic (so the system is resilient)
- There is always something blooming for the bees
Say no to monoculture!
