Re: [fukuoka_farming] Anyone in the UK?
I have had some similar experiences, I am in West Yorkshire.
Some questions if you will:
what are you trying to grow?
Do you use a scythe? Do you manage existing weed cover with any
Any possibility of animals for use on your land?
What kind of plant nursing facilities do you have? what scale?
Are you in the country or the city(ish)? what kind of mulch materials
are available to you?
