Now THIS is what a polyculture garden looks like! Look at how healthy everything is!
- The onions interplanted sporadically keep away a number of pests
- Nothing is concentrated enough to attract a plague of specialised agricultural pests
- The loss of one crop to disease or pests is not catastrophic (so the system is resilient)
- There is always something blooming for the bees
man, what if this is what all farms looked like?
primadonna-bastille asked: Favorite Greek words?
Meráki μεράκι (Greek)
Meraki is the essence of yourself that is put into your work. It is doing something with soul, creativity, or love.
Your essence is forever connected to whatever it is you have done. This is often referred to as our passion, but the Greek word meraki means more than that.
Meraki is when you put “something of yourself” into what you’re doing, whatever it may be.
It is often used to describe cooking or preparing a meal, but it can also mean arranging a room, choosing decorations, or setting an elegant table.
