Permaculture 101

I use the mixture of chicken manure and pine shavings that I clean out of the coop as both fertilizer and mulch for shrubs and perennials. Since I apply it in a raw form, not composted, I don't want it where it could splash up on fresh vegetables. Keeping my own yard as self sufficient as possible, using rather than throwing away, is one tiny permaculture practice I can be proud of.
