Tour of Mendocino Organics

Today we toured a biodynamic animal vegetable farm, Mendocino Organics. Adam learned Grow Biointensive and double dug a half acre before he realized It wouldn’t scale.

Below are pics of his green house, walk behind plow, flood irrigation, squash planting, and out 3:30PM lunch.

Between the 9 of us, we planted about 4000 squash plants in 3 hours in about 40,000 square feet. Would be interesting to compare the yields and labor required to Grow Biointensive.
