    Totally super mind blown! 🙂 So inspired to go mulch my whole back yard right now (it’s 10pm lol)… But I just got to be patient 🙂 We were just talking about how our pea plants look like they need nitrogen & it’s probably because we tilled the area before transplanting them 🙁

    I have a similar question to Jesse – do you know of any resources in Canada (BC) for soil testing kits? Would be great to analyze the soil I’m working with! Thanks.

      {HHA Coach} Hey Kristy! I’ll offer up the same advice as I gave to Jesse. You can usually find them through your local extension office or the county. You can also make your own depending on what you’re attempting to discover. This is covered in the course. Or you can buy them on the internet as well! Tons of great options available no matter where you live.

    Hey Bret! Do you happen to know where to get a good soil testing kit? We’re looking to test the soil on the new land on which we’ll be building our permaculture farm. Ideally, we want to know the soil structure as well as test for any harsh chemicals/minerals, and potentially radiation. Thank you!

      {HHA Coach} Hey Jesse! There are SO many different options, it’s best to google what you’d like to test for if your local extension office or county doesn’t provide them.

    Excellent series of classes. In about 30 minutes you have provided a basic understanding of a topic that one could spend years studying, get a doctorate in the subject and then spend the rest of our lives learning the minute details and interactions occurring literally beneath our feet.

    Great job Brett.

    Again like 2.3 quite a lot to take in. Cliff’s notes are good and I’m drawing visual notes from those as an aide memoire.

    I really enjoyed this lesson. I knew a little about the nutrients needed in the soil but didn’t realize the extensive role that they played. I just thought of nutrient being passed to the parts of the plants being consumed but never considered the other functions that those nutrients served. This was very interesting to me.
    I am a visual and kinetic learner so i take lots of notes by hand to help myself retain information. For those having issues with visual vs audio learning, that might be a help to others too at least until more slides/visuals become available.

    Hey Bret,
    You mentioned that some fertilisers are for vegetative growth and some are for blooming or fruiting. What do you mean by vegetative growth of the plant?

    • Bret James says:

      Vegetative growth is the period where the plant itself and its roots are growing, then at some point the plant stops growing and puts it’s energy into flowering, this is the bloom or fruiting period.

    hay, really enjoying the course, but indeed, needs more pictures/ diagrams, as having a hard time keeping my eyes open 🙂

    Fantastic info! Loved learning what the purpose for each of NPK is for the plant, what it does. Thanks!

    Great info, but listing the new terms visually for further research may be helpful. Also, some visual learners may benefit from seeing the pictures to back the terms and relationships, functions, and so on. My husband is having a hard time staying interested w/o pictures, haha

      Hey Martha,

      Thanks for the feedback! As the course goes on we began including more and more slides, images and video footage so hopefully his interest will increase as you go forward 🙂
