Molly, her husband, and her 3 very small children moved into the property this past September. In her words, she is “not a farmer or gardener in the least” and the previous owners really let the landscape go. She read about permaculture and didn’t want to plant anything invasive or harmful and wants to make sure she is improving her land and not deteriorating the soil. Her immediate priorities were to improve the landscape bed and create an orchard. She also wanted to reduce the amount of yard for her husband to mow.
