Polyculture research project seeks volunteers

The Polyculture Study - March - September 2015

For 2015, we are delighted to be offering an educational experience in Bulgaria with a difference.  Last year, we conducted a study to gauge how productive a biological polyculture could be.  We wish to expand on this by creating a team of 4 enthusiastic people to participate in further research. 
We'll be establishing a market garden consisting of annual herb and vegetable polycultures. We are aiming to produce food for local markets. We plan to record all aspects of the project including how long it takes to develop, maintain and manage, associated costs, the fertility requirements, the returns in produce weight and income derived from the sale of the produce.

The main questions we will be asking:
  • How productive can polycultures be?
  • How economically viable are they?
  • How much time does it take up?
  • What income can you expect?
