Timpson Creek Farm

BY DARBY WEAVER
@ VOL 36 ON AUG 26, 2018

Through study, design, and implementation, we are capable of setting up food systems that mimic nature's flow, are easy to manage, work on nature's renewable engine, and house closed fertility loops that increase overall sustainability. "Making" these places where nature and production meet offer many rewards both felt on an individual/spiritual growth curve and on the greater community that have access to fresh food and experiences within nature's matrix. Darby Weaver shares with us about these fascinating systems in her presentation.
