What is permaculture? I have an idea that it has to do with organic gardening. It's ironic but I grew up with organic gardening. My mother used to save all the peelings etc. but she didn't put them on the garden; they were thrown over the fence. I wasn't interested in gardening at the time so I don't remember if she used the compost. We had clay and she loved to garden but had a difficult time with the soil. No spray was ever used on our food.
I know someone who digs a hole in her garden and puts fresh peelings etc. in her flower bed. I've done that too but I don't wish to feed the skunks.
In our area, we used to be able to purchase the plastic bins for composting; I think I would prefer homemade bins but I am worried about an odour. Any suggestions? I wish to keep our neighours friendly.
