Helen Atthowe of http://www.veganicpermaculture.com shows off her sustainable organic fertilizer experiments starting with a pasture that is dominantly used for grazing and some haying. The goal is an organic minimum till and no till vegetable production system. The area started with smooth brome, weeds like oxeye daisy and goldenrod, and legume/nitorogen fixers alfalfa and red clover.

After turning over the sod, the green manure / living mulch was planted. Dominantly red clover and triticale. The green manure crop turned out to be very water dependent.
