“Keep it Living”

Farming, Native American Style

A good report on the increasing evidence that Native American farming techniques were very productive and sustainable, compared to contemporaneous European techniques and even today. Studying the nearly exterminated techniques of resource management can help us develop permaculture practices today. In many ways, “restoration” includes restoration of forms of knowledge (Native American permaculture techniques) and restoration of practices (walkability in cities).
