We also host a two week intensive format course for full immersion into sustainable and regenerative permaculture design. These courses are great for those who want to connect with the Central Texas Permaculture community and see what living the permaculture lifestyle truly means and feels like.

    Would there be any advantage to inulaste the soil surface with, say, bags filled with pine needles or even just a tarp to keep as much heat from being lost as possible?

    Yes, mulching the soil surface is always a good idea. A very wise soil scientist, Elaine Ingam, once said, “Mother Nature abhors bare soil.” The mulch will help stabilize the soil temperature and moisture as well as encourage soil life of the soil food web.
