Permaculturist Geoff Lawton uses chickens for ground preparation (he calls it doing the "spade work") and then uses them to help with clean up and maintenance throughout the growth of the food forest. Regardless of lot size, you can start a 12-month-a-year food forest.

Starting this week-end and continuing over the next week, we will put new information about and pix from the Food Forest DVD on Facebook. Keep checking back here for more info:
