Greetings! This is the second in our “Success Stories” series, in which we catch up with some of our past volunteers and course participants and share what they’ve been up to since their time with us. Today we’re hearing from Sarah, whom we had the pleasure of hosting here at Atitlan Organics back in 2016 when she came to spend a couple months as a volunteer on the farm. Since then she went on to found St. Pete Ferments–the first and only business in the area which honors the traditional way of fermenting –in St. Petersburg, Florida.
oday we’re taking a look at a special kind of layering: air layering. Remember, layering is the propagation method to use for plants that fall to the ground and make roots. Some plants, however, have that ability but will never actually fall, such as a macadamia tree. Many such trees can be propagated by air layering. Instead of bringing the plant to the ground, we bring the ground to the plant. Take a look at the video below to see the process!
Last week we looked at root division, so today we’ll take a look at plant division to really highlight the difference between these two similar-sounding methods of plant propagation.
Greetings! We’re excited to bring you a new kind of blog post, one where we catch up with some of our past volunteers and course participants and share what they’ve been up to since their time with us. We’ve been honored to host many amazing, inspiring, and inspired people over the years and lots of them have gone on to form businesses, projects, and social enterprises using their knowledge of permaculture.
Today we’re taking a second look at root division, this time with the perennially-loved (see what I did there?) comfrey.
Today Brock will be showing us how to do a bark inlay graft on one of the young avocado trees we have here at Atitlan Organics.
