One important principle of non-intensive farming is to give each plant room to grow and produce fruit naturally.  Unlike an orchard, fruit trees are not planted as a monoculture, but spread throughout Nd.  Each species is given its own space, or planted near a complementary species.  In this photo, we see four fruit-bearing trees together: coconut, banana, mango and papaya.  Placing different fruit trees near one another allows them to complement each other's needs, rather than competing for the same nutrients.  Previous Home Next
