The US National Debt vs. The American States National Credit


By Anna Von Reitz

The US National Debt is approximately 25 trillion dollars.  This debt is owed by United States Citizens and Citizens of the United States.

Approximately 90% of this debt is owed to American State Citizens and American State Nationals, with the remainder being trade deficits and other forms of debt owed to other countries, primarily to China.

The DOD has discovered a credit of approximately 21 trillion dollars on its books.  This is the National Credit owed to the American States and People.

This credit accrued over nearly a hundred years during which generations of Americans exchanged their labor and goods for I.O.U.’s issued by the Federal Reserve. 

When the DOD issues a Credit Voucher to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency to offset Debts presented for payment by American State Nationals or American State Citizens, the US National Debt is decreased by the amount of the Voucher. 

If, however, DOD issues a Credit Voucher to pay off Debts presented for payment by United States Citizens or Citizens of the United States, the net affect is to increase the US National Debt, plus additional interest. 

When our National Credit is accessed by American State Nationals and American State Citizens and applied to their debts,  the US National Debt decreases and US Credit Rating is restored.

As this National Credit is already accrued, allowing American State Nationals and American State Citizens to access it does not represent any new expense or burden to the US.  It’s simply bookkeeping which needs to be done and which relieves everyone of debt.

It relieves American State Nationals and American State Citizens of odious debts by canceling those debts using already accrued National Credit, and it relieves United States Citizens and Citizens of the United States of their National Debt burden at the same time.

Everyone wins.  Nobody loses.  So why isn’t it being done as of yesterday?

Answer: first, many American State Nationals and American State Citizens were being deliberately misidentified as United States Citizens and/or Citizens of the United States, making them ineligible to receive the Credit Offset.

Second, many United States Citizens and Citizens of the United States continued to mindlessly indebt themselves, racking up not only debt, but interest charges.

Third, although the Department of Defense did ultimately come clean about the existence of the National Credit, they have not had the authority to correct the situation. 

Only we, the living people, have the answer: everyone who is eligible to reclaim their birthright political status as American State Nationals and American State Citizens, do so.

Do the paperwork we’ve outlined, record your claims, when you are finished with those steps, go to our new website, SignInAmerica.net, as soon as it is available, sign up to receive more information and then collect evidence of debt owed by the STRAWMAN — mortgages, college loans, utility bills, wherever the name of the STRAWMAN account shows up. 

These are all debts that are owed mutual offset credit exchange— that is, cancellation by Credit Voucher.

As these debts are cancelled against the National Credit that Americans are already owed, the US National Debt burden is relieved as a result of the same transaction. 

Win-Win, one by one.

The Situation, the Ledger, and You


By Anna Von Reitz

If you are an American State Citizen or American State National, you were always owed exemption from paying mortgages, federal taxes, loans of credit (because you were the source of all that credit, unbeknownst to you), utility bills, college tuition, etc., etc., etc.

What was supposed to happen was that when these bills were presented to you, you were supposed to receive a “Mutual Offset Credit Exchange”.  They were supposed to credit your account against debts they already owed you.

Jim owes you ten, you owe him five, so you agree to write off five of what he owes you and that cancels your debt to him entirely.  

That’s what was supposed to happen.

Instead, the politicians dreamed up this identity theft fraud scheme in which your credits were blocked using the excuse that you were “presumed dead” and converted into a “United States Citizen” or a “Citizen of the United States” and therefore not owed exemption.

The criminals then forced you to pay full boat for everything plus interest.

Your actual work and goods were exchanged under monopoly inducement for pieces of paper underwritten by your own credit, and at the end of the day, the Perps declared bankruptcy and skated away, leaving you to hold the bag. Twice. They did this in 1907 and 1933 and each time, the American States and People took it in the shorts.

Now the actual billing has been discovered and the web of deceits and Bad Faith underlying it, too.

The Department of Defense has “discovered” $21 trillion in credit that is owed to you — credit that you and your ancestors are owed that you never received.  That amount almost exactly equals their “National Debt”. 

Guess why?

Now the same Bad Actors are trying to force you to convert to an asset-backed system in order to snuff their own debt. “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!” 

Instead, what needs to happen is for all that credit to be applied and the bookkeeping done, while at the same time allowing us to translate credit as needed into asset-backed currencies.  

Some of you have asked about Peter of England’s Debt Eradication Vouchers — these would transfer credit from the DOD stockpile to offset debts owed by American State Nationals and American State Citizens.  Every credit thus transferred would reduce the US National Debt by the same amount.

It is basically all bookkeeping that was conveniently left undone and remedy that was fraudulently withheld from the American People for the better part of a hundred years, so that the perpetrators could afford to wage wars and have vast slush funds which they used to buy politicians and controlling interest in the stock market and to set up the Exchange Stabilization Fund to rig the world currency markets and to do all sorts of other nefarious things.

So the Debt Eradication Vouchers would take care of one part of the need and provide a means of settling all mortgages and college loans and that sort of thing.  A special Credit Card could be issued to pay ongoing medical expenses and utility bills.  All of that would be a tremendous relief. 

But above and beyond that, there needs to be a means set up to translate credit into asset-backed currencies, so that we can participate in the world economy on our own terms.  Certainly, we don’t need or want to convert 100% of the credit owed to us into asset-backed currencies, but we do want to be able to do that, too.

So this is why the concept of the International Trade Bank makes so much sense.  You can have a shadowbank (aka Private Commercial Bank) on one side of the institution cancelling debt using the Vouchers and issuing credit to pay off ongoing bills, and an asset-backed system bank on the other side of the institution — all under one roof, but not commingling — with a “Sister Account” that receives lawfully converted credit as asset-backed money. 

This allows both systems to function and to repay credit in real time and to convert credit to asset-based money in real time—both as needed.  This, then, allows for a much smoother and easier transition process for everyone as it spreads worldwide.

However, to reclaim your credit(s) and vouchers and set up such a system requires that you participate and reclaim your American State National/American State Citizen status. 

Every American who completes the paperwork to return their Good Name to the land and soil of an American State is “eligible” for repayment credit.  All members of our actual State Assemblies will– by definition– be eligible.

This doesn’t mean that others who are currently working for the Federal Government and/or acting as US Citizens of some kind will be permanently shut out — but they will have to go by a different pathway or will probably have to wait until they separate from Federal Employment.

We are in the process of setting up a computerized system to allow you to “log in” to confirm your eligibility and your interest in setting up a credit/asset account with our international trade bank as described above. 

I expect there will be links on my website and The American States Assembly website and probably http://www.PaperUpNow.com , also. 

We need approximately 120,000 eligible participants to launch the program.
 
What say you?  Ready to receive back credit that is owed to you, your parents, and your grandparents? 

I know I am. 

As the tally function kicks in, I will be keeping everyone up to date.

This is going to be fun!

Are Pleiadians or Greys, Humans from a Future Time?

Just about everyone has heard of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), but what about Unidentified Future Objects? Alien encounters have been reported for decades. If there is one thing that the aliens are keen to tell us and have us believe, it’s that they originate on other worlds.

But, are they being truthful with us?

Might they really be time-travelers? In H.G. Wells’ classic novel of 1895, The Time Machine, an adventurous Londoner heads off into a dark future, where he clashes with cave-dwelling monsters, explores ruined cities and witnesses the final moments of life on Earth.

In the 1968 movie, Planet of the Apes, Charlton Heston’s character, Taylor, an American astronaut, arrives on a nightmarish world run by a race of talking apes.

WhatDoesitMean.com 3-21-19… “Europe Stares Into Abyss After Populist Trump Forces Throw Socialist Dutch Government From Power” (or, “Trump Derangement Syndrome may be ‘Peaking out’”)

As I mentioned in this earlier Kp message post, I often read these articles, primarily for information which often “resonates” within me. This one, in particular, resonated quite mightily, in that it tells quite a story of how many ways the deep state is falling apart.

Currently, the US Democrat party, in a general sense, has continually gone to great lengths to downgrade Donald J. Trump and prevent him from doing what he came here to do. And they are helping expose themselves for (in many cases) the rather dark-intended beings that they are playing right now. Perhaps it will change, and I’m sure many who carry the “Democrat” label are not at all amused by what is going on in their own party ranks.

Cosmically, we are in a MASSIVE HIGH VIBRATION LIGHT influx period. Two days after the Kauai mission, Schumann resonances went up to 150 Hz (I guess that’s big). So like it or not, anything being “put out there”, energetically, is bound to come back, big time. That appears to be what is occurring with the D party.

Anyway, I enjoyed reading this and checking out the many links provided, so presumably one or two of you might also enjoy it.

[Kp Note: bolding in the highlights is my own. *TDS = Trump Derangement Syndrome.]

“…barely two-months from the crucial 2019 European Parliament Election due to be held between 23-26 May, this continent’s socialist leaders are staring into the abyss after pro-Trump populist forces in the Netherlands placed into power the Euroskeptic party Forum for Democracy… stripping the ruling socialist coalition of its majority… and that now sees the Dutch peoples joining with Italy, Austria, Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic, all of whom have placed into power pro-Trump governments… a not so surprising cascade of victories when viewed in the light of President Trump being more popular in Europe than any of its socialist leaders.

“…a geopolitical assessment of Trump written by Joshua Mitchell, the professor of political theory at Georgetown University—that remains the first, and truest, analysis of what Trump is doing, and wherein it’s stated:

“‘If you listen closely to Trump, you’ll hear a direct repudiation of the system of globalization and identity politics that has defined the world order since the Cold War… six specific ideas…:

“‘(1) Borders matter
(2) Immigration policy matters
(3) National interests, not so-called universal interests, matter
(4) Entrepreneurship matters;
(5) Decentralization matters
(6) PC speech—without which identity politics is inconceivable—must be repudiated.’

“Burning across the entire European continent like an unstoppable wildfire, this report notes, President Trump’s reminding peoples of the moral virtues, industriousness and power of Western Civilization has sent down in flames every globalist-socialist government to come against him…

“In the United States itself, though, this report details, the globalist-socialist forces arrayed against President Trump have actually resorted to plunging vast swaths of their nation’s citizens into full blown mental insanity [aka, TDS*]

“Left with only mentally deranged anti-Trump viewers of CNN, and other failing globalist-socialist news outlets, to support them… the socialist-led Democrat Party has just received new marching orders going into the 2020 Presidential Election from… columnist Paul Krugman… not to even bother helping tens-of-millions of rural white Americans because they’re all uneducated racists…

Europe Stares Into Abyss After Populist Trump Forces Throw Socialist Dutch Government From Power

A sensational new Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that barely two-months from the crucial 2019 European Parliament Election due to be held between 23-26 May, this continent’s socialist leaders are staring into the abyss after pro-Trump populist forces in the Netherlands placed into power the Euroskeptic party Forum for Democracy—that is now set to become one of the two largest groups in the Dutch Senate, stripping the ruling socialist coalition of its majority after winning provincial elections yesterday—and that now sees the Dutch peoples joining with Italy, Austria, Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic, all of whom have placed into power pro-Trump governments—a not so surprising cascade of victories when viewed in the light of President Trump being more popular in Europe than any of its socialist leaders. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

According to this report, the Forum for Democracy political party (Dutch: Forum voor Democratie, FvD) that has just swept into power in the Netherlands was founded on 22 September 2016, a little less than two months prior to President Trump winning his stunning election victory over globalist-socialist leader Hillary Clinton—and whose founder Thierry Baudet prepared to create this party on 19 September 2016 by his Tweeting out to his nation’s peoples the words “Donald Trump Does Have Ideas—and We’d Better Pay Attention to Them—that referenced and linked to a geopolitical assessment of Trump written by Joshua Mitchell, the professor of political theory at Georgetown University—that remains the first, and truest, analysis of what Trump is doing, and wherein it’s stated:

If you listen closely to Trump, you’ll hear a direct repudiation of the system of globalization and identity politics that has defined the world order since the Cold War.

There are, in fact, six specific ideas that he has either blurted out or thinly buried in his rhetoric:

(1) Borders matter

(2) Immigration policy matters

(3) National interests, not so-called universal interests, matter

(4) Entrepreneurship matters;

(5) Decentralization matters

(6) PC speech—without which identity politics is inconceivable—must be repudiated.

These six ideas together point to an end to the unstable experiment with supra- and sub-national sovereignty that many of our elites have guided us toward, siren-like, since 1989.

A future where states matter.

A future where people are citizens, working together toward improvement of their lot.

On 6 July 2017, this report continues, President Trump traveled to Poland and spoke before a gathering of nearly one-million of it peoples, and where he fleshed out his “six specific ideas” into a full throated defence of Western Civilization against the globalist-socialist forces trying to destroy it—with his declaring:

As I stand here today before this incredible crowd, this faithful nation, we can still hear those voices that echo through history. Their message is as true today as ever. The people of Poland, the people of America, and the people of Europe still cry out “We want God.”

On both sides of the Atlantic, our citizens are confronted by yet another danger — one firmly within our control. This danger is invisible to some but familiar to the Poles: the steady creep of government bureaucracy that drains the vitality and wealth of the people. The West became great not because of paperwork and regulations but because people were allowed to chase their dreams and pursue their destinies.

Our adversaries, however, are doomed because we will never forget who we are.

And if we don’t forget who are, we just can’t be beaten. Americans will never forget. The nations of Europe will never forget.

We write symphonies. We pursue innovation. We celebrate our ancient heroes, embrace our timeless traditions and customs, and always seek to explore and discover brand-new frontiers.

We reward brilliance. We strive for excellence, and cherish inspiring works of art that honor God. We treasure the rule of law and protect the right to free speech and free expression.

We empower women as pillars of our society and of our success. We put faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, at the center of our lives. And we debate everything. We challenge everything. We seek to know everything so that we can better know ourselves.

And above all, we value the dignity of every human life, protect the rights of every person, and share the hope of every soul to live in freedom. That is who we are. Those are the priceless ties that bind us together as nations, as allies, and as a civilization.

Our citizens did not win freedom together, did not survive horrors together, did not face down evil together, only to lose our freedom to a lack of pride and confidence in our values.

We did not and we will not.

We will never back down.

Burning across the entire European continent like an unstoppable wildfire, this report notes, President Trump’s reminding peoples of the moral virtues, industriousness and power of Western Civilization has sent down in flames every globalist-socialist government to come against him—and because of, in France today, sees its socialist government now having to call out its military to protect itself from its own citizens seeking their freedom from socialist tyranny.

In the United States itself, though, this report details, the globalist-socialist forces arrayed against President Trump have actually resorted to plunging vast swaths of their nation’s citizens into full blown mental insanity—as evidenced by new reporting showing that millions of Americans are now worshiping Special Counsel Robert Mueller as a “godlike” figure in their hopes he will destroy Trump—many of whom are naming their children and pets after himbuying idols of his likeness to decorate their homes with—and lighting religious votive candles and praying to him, too.

IMAGE

Millions of insane Americans begin worshiping and praying to “Saint” Robert Mueller

Actively participating with these globalist-socialist forces plunging millions of American citizens into full blown mental insanity, this report explains, is the once venerated global cable and satellite news outlet CNN—who for the entirety of the Trump presidency, has engaged in a non-stop demonization campaign against Trump, that in the past few days alone has seen them failing to even tell their viewers that the US Supreme Court had handed Trump a stunning legal victory declaring he could detain any criminal illegal alien he wanted to—with their, instead, telling blatant lies about their nation’s Electoral College system, while, also, not telling their viewers that they are being sued for $250 million for reporting “fake news—and whose non-stop anti-Trump hysteria now has media experts saying that watching CNNis like watching an ex-husband seethe about his ex-wife all day and all night”—and explains why CNN’s ratings have suffered a double-digit historic ratings collapse, as only the most mentally ill people are able to live in such hate as they’re spreading.

IMAGE

Left with only mentally deranged anti-Trump viewers of CNN, and other failing globalist-socialist news outlets, to support them, this report concludes, the socialist-led Democrat Party has just received new marching orders going into the 2020 Presidential Election from New York Times, and Nobel Prize winning columnist Paul Krugman—who shockingly told the Democrats yesterday not to even bother helping tens-of-millions of rural white Americans because they’re all uneducated racists—a stunning call that comes at the same time a mass exodus of Jewish peoples from the Democrat Party has begun—thus leaving one to wonder who will be left voting for these Democrats in what is now being called “The Democratic Primary From Hell”—but whose answer too appears to be moot as TrendMacrolytics, the highly esteemed economic research firm whose model correctly predicted Trump’s 2016 win when most opinion polls did not, has just released their 2020 election forecast showing that President Trump is on his way to a 2020 election victory landslide.

How to Grow Eggplant

Growing eggplant shouldn’t be intimidating when you’re anticipating spring garden planting. Getting your seeds off to a good start, then tweaking them if needed, will help produce a harvest of nutritious fruit.

That’s what eggplant is, by the way, although many people think eggplants are vegetables. There are many beautiful varieties: large, purple Globe; Rosita, the 8-inch pinkish-lavender heirloom variety; long, thin Japanese eggplants and yellow, green and white-hued varieties with slightly varying flavors.1

Considered tropical perennials, eggplants can be grown as annuals in plant hardiness zones 5 through 12.2 They require full sun. Harvest times vary depending on the variety. Most require at least two months to mature. Some take 70 days or more, which is why starting seeds indoors helps get a jump on the season.

How to Grow Eggplant Inside

Regarding materials, you’ll need small pots, a seed-planting mix and seed packets. Always keep the packets as they often provide information about planting depth (which is deep), spacing, eggplant germination time and when to take the seedlings outside. This depends on your area’s last frost date, which your area’s planting zone will determine.3

Using garden soil might prevent your seeds and seedlings from draining properly and may expose them to unwanted bacteria, disease spores, plant-eating insects and a fungual disease known as “damping off.”

A sterile seed planting mix will give your eggplants the best chance of survival4 and allow you to blend ingredients to amend the medium you’re working with, such as bark, a coconut fiber called coir and vermiculite.5 Avoid synthetic fertilizer. Organic gardening and natural growing hacks are far superior.

Start seeds inside about eight to 12 weeks before your last frost date. Watering from the bottom up allows you to see the moisture levels and keep them even. Eggplants require lots of light and heat to grow properly. If there’s no natural sunlight from a south-facing window, artificial lighting is recommended.

Even if using a heat mat, make sure you provide light as soon as the seeds begin germinating, which usually takes seven to 14 days. The ideal soil temperature is 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Indoor plants also need moving air; a fan at a low setting will help produce sturdier plants.

Growing Eggplant in the Garden

In eight or 10 weeks, you’ll be able to transplant the seedlings into your garden. However, growing eggplant in containers6 is another option. According to The Spruce, soil pH7 of 6.5 to 6.8 (slightly acidic) is ideal, although the plants are not too particular.8

Either way, it helps to stake eggplants or use coated tomato cages to avoid disturbing established roots when the fruits get large. Mulch, straw or wood chips covering the soil around the plant will help keep it moist.

How long does it take for eggplant to grow? Eggplants are ready to harvest when they’re glossy and “give” slightly when you press into the skin. Here are some key points you’ll likely find useful:

  • Plants can be bushy and reach 2 to 3 feet in height, and their size and weight may cause stems to bend or break.
  • Eggplant stems are prickly, so it’s a good idea to wear gloves.
  • Overripe eggplants may be bitter and full of seeds, although a little salt can help.
  • Eggplant should be stored in the refrigerator and is best used within a couple of days but can be stored for up to two weeks.
  • Cut rather than pull eggplants from their vines, but don’t cut them until you’re ready to prepare them, as the flesh discolors almost immediately when exposed to air.

Health Benefits of Eggplant

One reason to plant and grow eggplant at home is all the healthy nutrients. Besides vitamins, minerals, folate, potassium, manganese and vitamins C, K and B6, eggplant phytonutrients include:

  • Phenolic compounds known as anthocyanins, which are flavonoids that help protect heart health9
  • Chlorogenic acid, a free radical scavenger with numerous beneficial properties10
  • Nasunin, shown to improve blood flow and protect brain cell membranes from damage11
  • Antioxidant and antiproliferative activities against colon and liver cancer cells12

Healthy Recipes Using Eggplant

When looking for eggplant recipes, possibilities abound, as it can be baked, roasted, stuffed and included with other ingredients.

Baked Eggplant Caprese Stack — basically a stacked caprese salad — is easy and delicious, requiring few ingredients besides the basics: sliced tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, eggplant, basil and olive oil. For extra protein, almond meal is used rather than wheat flour, which may cause digestive problems.

Many healthy eggplant recipes can be found, such as eggplant moussaka and an eggplant sandwich, which makes growing your own eggplant even more fun. As always, organic ingredients make it even healthier.

Planting ‘Forest Gardens’ Can Promote a More Sustainable Food System

A process known as “succession” occurs when one plant species replaces another.1 As explained in the National Geographic short film featured above, when an area is left to its own devices, it will naturally turn into a forest over time, replete with a wide variety of plant species, and this diversification occurs unaided by man.

The film features a man-made “forest garden” designed to mimic this kind of naturally occurring ecosystem, where fruit and nut trees grow intermingled with shrubs, herbs, vines and a variety of perennial vegetables in a seemingly wild-grown setting. According to National Geographic:2

“U.K.-based Martin Crawford is one of the pioneers of forest gardening. Starting out with a flat field in 1994, his land has been transformed into a woodland and serves as an educational resource for others interested in forest gardening.

This short film by Thomas Regnault focuses on Crawford’s forest garden, which is abundant, diverse, edible and might be one answer to the future of food systems.”

Diversity Allows the Entire System to Thrive

In his unconventional garden, Crawford grows 500 different edible plants and trees, yet the garden only requires a few hours of maintenance per month. This low maintenance requirement is a direct result of creating a self-sustainable and renewable ecosystem where everything is working in a symbiotic and supportive fashion.

While many today think of food production as the process of planting an annual crop, this really isn’t natural, Crawford says. In a natural ecosystem, there are several layers of plant growth, starting with tall trees at the top, with shorter trees, medium and low shrubs, root crops, climbing plants and low-lying ground cover underneath.

What’s more, while many of these produce edible foods directly, other plants, referred to by Crawford as “system plants,” are there simply to help the system as a whole thrive. In this group you have nitrogen-fixing plants, mineral accumulators and plants that attract pollinators and insects that serve as natural pest control by eating other more harmful bugs.

Aside from being low-maintenance, this kind of diversification also protects your crops from all manner of bad weather, be it storms, excessive rains or droughts. While some may fail, others may benefit and do better, but in many cases, a majority of your crops will survive and do well no matter what the weather is doing, Crawford says.

This cannot be said for monocrop farming, where if conditions are poor, the entire crop will fail all at once. As such, having a diverse garden is key to food security. “It gives you maximum resilience,” Crawford says.

How to Use Regenerative Farming Principles in Your Own Garden

Over the years, I’ve interviewed several pioneers in regenerative agriculture, among them, Gabe Brown, who has a regenerative farm in Bismarck, North Dakota. As explained by Brown, to grow healthy food you have to create healthy soil.

There are five basic principles to building a healthy soil ecosystem, and most of these can be implemented even if all you have is a small garden plot in your backyard:

Avoid disturbing the soil microbiome with tillage, herbicides, pesticides and fungicides — The less mechanical disturbance, the better. The same applies in your home garden.

The more you till, the faster the soil degrades and is destroyed, as it destroys soil aggregates and mycorrhizal fungi, which houses the microorganisms needed for nutrient transfer. Similarly, by adding synthetic nitrogen to the soil, the biology is radically altered — it starts consuming carbon in the soil aggregate, which destroys the soil structure.

Without soil structure water cannot infiltrate and move throughout the soil profile and be stored via organic matter. The soil aggregates also provide the home for soil biology, which is critical to producing nutrient dense food.

Protect the soil’s surface with cover crops and cover crop residue — Forest and prairie land is completely covered with vegetation and this is the environment farmers need to emulate. That vegetation protects the soil not only from wind and water erosion, but also from excessive heating and cooling. These living plants are what end up actually “growing” topsoil.

In your home garden, you can use mulch, wood chips or lawn clippings to do this. You never want to leave soil bare, as bare soil will have a negative effect on soil biology and the water cycle. Cover crops and other forms of “soil armor,” such as wood chips, effectively prevent water evaporation and lowers the soil temperature. 

There is easily a 20-degree F difference or more between soil that is bare and soil that is covered. When air temperatures reach 90 degrees or so, soil temperatures will rise well above 100 degrees, which will dry everything out and fry the plants’ roots.

“If you have good armor or residue on the soil surface, the temperature there can be in the 80-degree range. Those plants are growing. It’s a huge difference in production for the producer,” Brown says.

Diversify — Having a diverse array of plant life is essential, and cover crops fulfill this requirement as well. Home gardens will also benefit from cover crops, helping to improve the soil, attract beneficial insects and capture more sunlight (energy).

Maintain living roots in the ground as long as possible — In conventional farming, once a cash crop is harvested, there’s nothing left in the field to capture sunlight and keep growing. Maintaining some kind of growth at all times is key. If you have a small vegetable garden, don’t leave it bare once you’ve harvested your veggies. Instead, plant a cover crop in anticipation for the next season.

To make the transition back from cover crop to your chosen vegetables the following season, avoid the temptation to till the cover crop into the soil. Instead, use one of the following methods to kill off the cover crop and prepare the plot for new crop growth:

  • Stomp the cover crop into the ground with your feet or a board (simply attach two rope handles to a 2×4 board and then use the board to step down the crop)
  • If the cover crop has started to form seed heads, you can kill it off by rolling a crop roller or small barrel over it
  • Cut the growth down and leave the residue on top (although it works better if it’s rolled or stepped down)

Once the cover crop has been killed off, you’re ready to plant your vegetable seeds. For a small garden, use a hoe to part the cover crop remains over to the side. Create a small slice in the soil, drop in your seeds and cover with a small amount of soil. If you’re planting a transplant, simply move the cover crop aside, dig the hole and plant as normal.

Integrate livestock and other animals, including insects — Centuries ago, large herds of bison and elk moved across the landscape, foraging, depositing manure and trampling vegetation into the ground. All of this is part of the natural cycle that is missing when animals are kept in concentrated animal feeding operations.

Many have started raising chickens in their backyards again and chickens are an excellent addition to a sustainable garden. Rabbits, pigeons and ducks are other alternatives that could work in some suburban areas, but even if circumstances or local laws prevent you from adding animals, be sure to plant flowering plants that attract pollinators and predator insects, as these will naturally help ward off pests that might otherwise decimate your main crop.

Tips to Help You Design Your Own Permaculture Garden

While Crawford refers to his garden as a “forest garden,” it’s essentially a form of permaculture garden. Permaculture epitomizes sustainability by harnessing mutually beneficial relationships to create synergistic, self-supporting ecosystems. Its principles incorporate the best of organic, biodynamic and regenerative agriculture. According to the Permaculture Institute:3

“Permaculture is an ecological design system for sustainability in all aspects of human endeavor. It teaches us how to design natural homes and abundant food production systems, regenerate degraded landscapes and ecosystems, develop ethical economies and communities and much more.”

In short, permaculture is an agricultural system in which the parts of the system are all interconnected, working with nature as opposed to against it. The word “permaculture” derives from “permanent agriculture” or “permanent culture.” The focus is not on any one element of the system but on the relationships among them — animals, plants, insects, microorganisms, water, soil and habitat — and how to use these relationships to create self-supporting ecosystems.

If you want to shoot for a forest garden like Crawford’s, take his advice and just start planting some larger trees (or incorporate ones you already have on your property), then add smaller trees, shrubs and plants as you go along. You don’t have to have it all planned out before you begin.

While there’s no set formula for designing a permaculture garden, here are a few basic guidelines to consider:4

  • Copy a forest blueprint with a tree canopy that gives way to smaller trees, flanked by shrubs, with smaller shade plants under the canopy
  • Group plants by compatible roots and canopy systems, and by soil type, such as acid lovers in one area and drought-resistant in another
  • Identify microclimates in your yard and use them to your advantage, such as cooler shady corners, full sun, rocky areas and areas that receive abundant drainage
  • Incorporate as much diversity as possible, focusing on native plants and animals
  • Plan your area in zones based on use and accessibility; for example, plant your herb garden and greens in the areas easiest to access, such as along the driveway or along a path near your deck

Should you have a large enough piece of land, you could go a step further and take into account the five permaculture zones as illustrated in the following diagram. At its center are you and your house, but its outermost zone is untamed wilderness.
