Permaculture or “Permanent Agriculture” relies on systems working together in a natural way supporting one another to minimize a negative impact on the environment. Now that was a mouthful but in my view it is the basic premise of permaculture.
Not only does the permaculture approach make a lot of sense, it’s often easier then “mono-culture” farming or gardening methods in many ways.
I ran across this video that showcases the concept in an actual urban setting that well displays the advantages of using “small spaces” to great advantage that promotes tranquility as well as productivity in self sustaining fashion.
I especially enjoyed the “herb spiral” which is a classic permaculture design that in it’s self displays the true nature of this natural concept.

Answer this question first; What is your growing region?
Pick Your Zone
When to plant for spring | Well what exactly are you planting?
There is no definitive answer for when to plant until you determine exactly what your going to plant because each variety of vegetables for example have an approximate time to mature. The best solution is to visit your local seed store or on-line catalog to pick your favorite vegetable or flower. On the reverse side of the seed package likely you will find the seed producers approximate timeline from seed to maturity. It’s very important to your gardening success to do your home work and decide exactly what you will plant and then create the ideal conditions to make the planting happen in a timely fashion so you can harvest your produce at the right time of the year.

That publication still exists today and is available online in an electronic format. To make it even more useful if you sign up for their news letter they will send you alerts letting you know exactly when it’s the best time to plant! How cool is that?
