In this permaculture garden in Mouscron, Belgium, over 2000 types of fruit trees and 5000 kinds of vegetables grow freely in a 1800m² jungle, much more productively than any manmade monoculture could achieve. Abricots, palm trees, lettuce year round. Soil hasn’t been turned or watered for 40 years. No pest problems. No artificial anything. (Video in French)
