On Wednesday, July 8th, a local youth group will be digging Banana circles! Yes, you heard that right, Banana circles. These are a creative permaculture way of planting tropical banana trees mixed in with sweet potato vines. The end result are plants that like each other and produce lots tasty fruit and vegetables.
By the end of the project lots of these circles will be planted all over the property. They are a great way for youth groups to be involved and then keep tracking their circle. Let us know if your group wants to dig a circle!
