Polyculture!!!!! Basically, planting many different vegetables/flowers/herbs all together in a group and encouraging beneficial pests and soil diversity. They get more into the specifics in the article.
Mass agriculture is usually monoculture farming, or one giant field of one plant.
Not only does it promote disease…. it’s just no fun. Permaculture gardens (which demonstrate polyculture practices) are some of the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen.
