    We do indeed live in the boondocks and mow acres of grass. Could I get the same results with green (or dry a couple of days later) grass? In the summer we often mow 3 times a week, nearly 4 acres, so there is plenty.

    I add wood chips, mulch and compost to my year round garden beds in zone 9b central Florida. My soil is beautiful.

    Great reminder! I have been composting dried leaves in my GeoBins and using them in my garden. Works wonders! Thanks for sharing.

    Hey Dan, I love to watch your videos, they are very inspiring. I was wondering if you could help Sean and Sasha get their channel Edible Acres rolling a little better by maybe giving them a shout out or something. They are really down to earth good people like you. Thanks.

    I bought the lot next to me where a house had burned down.When they removed the debris they did not grade it or bring any top soil in.I was lucky to have a tree service parking their trucks 2blocks from me and for several months I had them dumping on the lot to level it out and now I’m at the point where I’m growing on top of the wood chips in compost I’m making on site.I had gotten a few estimates to bring in topsoil and grade it and the lowest one was 6 thousand dollars,with some patience and a pitchfork I did it for free.Planning on planting some Merritt collards I bought from you last fall in that lot!

    What’s the best way to separate the sticks, more uniform & the much smaller matter? Thank you.

    For any of you who are working on building a food forest and live out in the country like me, it may be hard or impossible to get wood chips, as Dan said. If you don't want to buy wood chips or have a lot of land like me and you're willing to do some research and put a little extra work in and wait a little bit longer to improve your soil, fret not! Cover crop and chop and drop like crazy! If you can't get wood chips, grow lots of nitrogen fixing trees, fast growing biomass plants, and nitrogen fixing chop and drop. In my case, in the subtropics, i'm planning on growing sunn hemp, sunshine mimosa, moringa, mimosa and black locust trees, mexican sunflowers, black eyed peas and a few other things. When all this grows, chop it to the ground and let all that biomass break down. It may be a bit more difficult than wood chips but it will be worth it if you put in a little diligence and patience.

    Great videos as always. Wood chips definitely work.
