But there is a new agricultural
revolution sweeping the land that is changing the way humans eat and
grow food, and its methods are derived from the concepts found in
As opposed to factory farming systems,
which rely heavily on chemical and fertilizer inputs and destroy the
environment and human health in the process, permaculture farming
systems take advantage of the many unique ways that natural systems
work together to complement one another and sustain life.
So we have put together a list of ways
you can begin growing your own fruits and vegetables at home in ways
that draw from permaculture growing concepts.
This unique setup utilizes moveable
chicken "tractors" that can be rotated around for the purpose of
naturally fertilizing and tilling soil, and creating an environment
in which fruits and vegetables grow easily with minimal labor.
Vertical, indoor farming
And even if sunlight is limited, special
growing lights can also be used to grow food indoors in otherwise
dark areas. When stacked and tiered around these light sources,
vertical, indoor farms can thrive.

Hydroponic systems work well in urban
settings where physical space, and even natural sunlight, is in
short supply. Hydroponic systems can be stacked in small spaces,
which allows for maximized growing capacity in a small amount of
But instead of just fruits and
vegetables, aquaponics systems incorporate fish and other sea
creatures into the mix as well. A hybrid of the two systems,
aquaponics provides some city dwellers with adequate space the
ability to produce their own fish for meat, and even sell it to
