Some tips on companion planting and gardening

As our innovator level Patreon subscribers know, we believe in a balanced life. We love companions, be they animals or people. We enjoy the concept of companion gardening where three or more plants are put together to benefit each other. In the Americas, it was generally a ground cover plant to keep out weeds and make some mulch, a N fixing plant to add natural protein for the plant and, finally a taller species that will provide shade, shelter, and a growing structure to get the plants into the light.

We love the regenerative nature of these ideas. They make us happy that they eliminate the need for weedkillers and pest killers. Plus we think there is some soil regenerative actions in there. We are crazy about regenerative gardening, food forests and that style of growing with nature in a holistic way.

As we get lots of communications from many places we found these three links here that might help you, now that planting time in the northern hemisphere is here. We will publish more.

Link 1 is about companion planting.

Link 2 is a little older but again speaks to companion planting in gardens

Link 3 is more recent and is about windowsill gardening as companions for us and for those of us without much space.
