Permaculture design has never been more necessary than in a world post-coronavirus. Growing food, producing local energy, creating local community, and embracing the skills of poverty are now more not only within reach but more important than ever.
I had forgotten how important the area right around the house is. How amazingly productive a super small, but stacked and well-managed space can be.
Apartment rooftops, suburban garages, and other small-living conditions can also support healthy chickens, despite the lack of much available ‘free-range’. In these types of situations, we must turn to stationary housing and very-small, or often non-existent chicken ranges. The key to the sanitary stationary house is Deep Bedding, which not only keeps hens healthy, but also produces amazing compost with practically no work.
