Brian and I have been studying various organic gardening strategies for about 3 decades including biodynamic, biointensive, and Permaculture (certified designers) as well as training in the Soil Foodweb, beekeeping,and Aquaponics. San Mateo Ecovillage has about 10,000 sq ft of organic gardens, 3 dozen fruit trees, chickens, a greenhouse, and an Aquaponics greenhouse with 2-300 gallon ponds and 3-4x8 grow beds. We have built the soil on our property over the last 15 years. We grow much of our own food as well as supporting a local CSA. I have never heard the term deep nature gardening but while reading the definition, it seems to fit.
With my husband, we are the founders of San Mateo Ecovillage, a residential community with an emphasis on sustainability on the waterfront in San Mateo. I am a retired teacher and he is about to retire as a machinist from United Airlines.
