    I’ve seen a lot of gardening videos I think you’re by far ahead of the crowd by incorporating every aspect in other words a comprehensive teaching teaching while you’re learning. very interesting. thanks for taking the time to share

    Brilliant

    My God you are not the only garden video can you talk less and get to the damn point

  4. RonnygoBOOM on July 3, 2019 at 1:47 pm

    I love your scientific approach. I’m excited to keep learning about what you find

  5. Mark Colbert on July 3, 2019 at 1:49 pm

    Great channel Bruce. Always a mine of information

    Ambitious endeavor, I am enjoying your videos although I have to chuckle anytime you try to tell me that socialist squirrel green BS. For example, fossil fuels, gas, etc fear mongering is hilarious. There is this strategy of fermentation that will allow engines to keep running even if the chicken littles pushing their books filled with others innovations they "repackaged" will the oil wells to stop pumping the black gold. However, the only time that happens is when socialism is implemented…go figure. That being said I like your ambitious project. It is a noble quest to test these approaches but I think your missing the point of all these gardening approaches. Think of these approaches to grow food as tools in your tool belt. Each approach has pro’s and cons but I applaud you for trying it in your landscape. You will find this to be true over time, but I think you will find faster success if you think of these as tools for you the gardener instead of growing religions that can only have one devoted loyal servant. As the good tender of the Vineyard, you have the freedom to fail and prosper but always learn with each rising and setting sun. You got this, don’t over think it, just grow it.

    poly culture is and always will be primo, I have experience for sure.

    What about "Square Foot Gardening" by Mel Bartholomew? The first version of the book sold 2 million copies back in the 80’s. I just heard about it recently. Seems very popular!

    Great content and valuable info! Gardens look happy 🙂

  10. Radu Adrian on July 3, 2019 at 1:52 pm

    9:30 I think I saw a rat or a small cat running outside the tunnel.

  11. Joseph Larsen on July 3, 2019 at 1:53 pm

    i like the idea of doing no dig with chickens like paul gautschi does in his back to eden garden (which is just a no dig garden). Might make it work better in your environment

  12. Liam Hathaway on July 3, 2019 at 1:54 pm

    Such an amazing project. This is a true test to see what works best in different situations. I’ve always felt so confused after reading from different gardening authors.

  13. Anna at the Farm on July 3, 2019 at 1:54 pm

    New subscriber .. Great video’s.

  14. Across The Pond on July 3, 2019 at 1:55 pm

    This is outstanding!
    All of the pros and cons of the various gardening methods all in one location.

  15. Eleanor Williams on July 3, 2019 at 1:57 pm

    It’s really helpful that you are being clear about which methods require the most resources to set up and maintain. One of the main barriers for me, and probably many other people, is the moolah to buy enough compost/mulch/improvers to start some of the types of garden you are researching. I’m setting up a hot compost pile to deal with the mounds of weeds I’m getting from clearing my garden. It makes sense to me to put composting at the front of my own journey, alongside clearing. That way by the time I’ve settled on what or which methods I want to try out – I’ll hopefully have a little free (and weed seed free) compost available to me. I’m hearing that homemade ‘teas’ like nettle tea are good as plant feeds, so I will leave some nettles and other weeds in the ground. Would you be kind enough to make a ‘tea’ video at some point in the future? Best, Ellie 🙂

    I appreciate you sharing your knowledge but I just have to make the comment. The way you speak makes me feel like you’re trolling me. Sound like Yoda+J.R.R. Tolkien. But I love your garden talk, it’s all love.

  17. Vaughn Malecki on July 3, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    The greatest project of our generation!

    LOVE! The hanging baskets of crop and am installing shade houses (shade is more important in a subtropical climate than heat and the shade cloth helps keep frost away…) My shade houses will have inbuilt strength to allow for vertical gardening, creating more crop from less ground space… This is looking great in your videos and I look forward to trying it out for myself…
    Construction starts May, 2017 allowing for day time temperatures cool enough to work rather than over 32 degree C.

  20. Bobbi West on July 3, 2019 at 2:03 pm

    Informative, thank you. Beautiful gardens. Healthy looking crops. I prefer the tunnel. Less weathered crops.

  21. Freedom Woodgas and Homesteading on July 3, 2019 at 2:04 pm

    Hey, thanks for the info on Coleman’s book. thats one gardening book that I will purchase

  22. mgt74 on July 3, 2019 at 2:04 pm

    Such a great project. Just ran across this. Keen to see the results in the next few vids.

  23. Christian Hipp on July 3, 2019 at 2:06 pm

    Could anyone explain the concept of growing a crop just for biomass? I don’t quite understand how you could increase the amount of nutrients in soil by using plants that have grown, taking nutrients from that same soil.

  24. Bram B on July 3, 2019 at 2:06 pm

    I like it! Personally I will pursue the no-dig method with pre-made compost myself in the future. Just because It seems to require the least amount of effort.

  25. Robert M on July 3, 2019 at 2:09 pm

    Where did you find that companion planting chart?

  26. john johnson on July 3, 2019 at 2:09 pm

    Man with the plan:)

  27. Rami James on July 3, 2019 at 2:12 pm

    If you can add links to the books that would be great for us and a revenue source for you.

  28. pardotkynes1 on July 3, 2019 at 2:12 pm

    I have a new favorite gardening channel.

  29. Václav Čermák on July 3, 2019 at 2:13 pm

    Bummer we can’t fast-forward a few years to see how each garden is doing.

  30. Miranda F on July 3, 2019 at 2:14 pm

    Wow! What you are doing is so fantastic!!! Love how you are experimenting with different methods,. Thank you for sharing what you are learning.

  31. Edwin Karani on July 3, 2019 at 2:15 pm

    Thanks for sharing important information.

  32. London Worms & Garden on July 3, 2019 at 2:17 pm

    Really interesting gardening approaches. We’ve recently acquired a small 30ft x 30ft plot and we’re hoping to be able to develop it as a no dig plot eventually once we’ve dug out all the rubble! It’s been neglected for years and seems to have been used as a dumping ground at some point in the past.

  33. Smokeydabee Charles Coleman on July 3, 2019 at 2:18 pm

    Is it difficult to keep in form/Technique (to maintain integrity of the particular gardening style) when moving from garden to garden ? If so, maybe a video covering those similar situations is in order. Great channel. I like the question, "What is the best method of growing food? ". I think that a more complete question is being answered here already though. What is the best method for ME… to grow food. Me being anyone watching this channel. Thank you again.

  34. TN Gardener on July 3, 2019 at 2:19 pm

    I’m going through the process of finding the best way for my location so this video is perfect. Thank You!

  35. Poly Organza on July 3, 2019 at 2:21 pm

    Where do you get all this time? What do you do for a living?

  36. Laurence Gomez on July 3, 2019 at 2:21 pm

    Very informative, thank you.

  37. Life Learner on July 3, 2019 at 2:24 pm

    Thanks for sharing the book titles and authors.

  38. Rami James on July 3, 2019 at 2:25 pm

    I hugely look forward to your videos. Thanks for sharing your detailed knowledge.

  39. Eric Puro on July 3, 2019 at 2:25 pm

    Great work! I hope your analysis also includes the ecological impact each various method of growing food has.

  40. siddharth seran on July 3, 2019 at 2:26 pm

    I’ve decided to watch your videos in chronological order. And finally I see a couple of dislikes on this one. I’m of the belief that this could be a result of you shaving your beard.? Cos the content is just awesome. I can’t think of another reaosn.

  41. Lowcountry Malts on July 3, 2019 at 2:26 pm

    Awesome. Just Awesome.

  42. Laura K on July 3, 2019 at 2:28 pm

  43. moJoe on July 3, 2019 at 2:30 pm

    If only the world had more people like you in it. Keep it up!

  44. Doubledig on July 3, 2019 at 2:31 pm

    Great videos Bruce, and well done for all the work and research you do. If you had the space and time I’d like to see the results/comparisons of a Biodynamic garden.

  45. peter kooolwijk on July 3, 2019 at 2:31 pm

    Good stuff! Surely interested and will find more of your videos. Thank you for making them.

    Whenever I listen to your videos I have to turn my volume all the way up to hear you. In editing can you raise the volume just slightly? (In future Videos)
