Talking Tree Farm practices sustainable agriculture in Converse, Texas.
Following the natural farming methods of permaculture inspired by Masanobu Fukuoka, Bill Mollison, Geoff Lawton and so many others, we implement a well thought-out system so that an edible living ecosystem will sustain itself. There is a huge focus on building and feeding the soil. No 'cides (pesticide, herbicide, insecticide, or any other store-bought product). We use companion planting, worm farms, different composts, and compost teas. No till gardening. There are swells and multiple ponds, pasture raised chickens, ducks, and turkeys. The farm runs on 100% solar energy and there is a huge focus on heirloom seed saving and sharing.
We offer free permaculture classes once a month at the farm and post these events on our Facebook page. We do edible landscape design consulting for people who want to transform their lawns at home into something that will nourish their body and soul. We sell our produce and eggs at the Pearl Brewery Farmers Market on Sundays from 10:00am-2:00pm.
