Annual Polyculture - EpictetusWe tried this polyculture for the first time in 2016 (see here for results). It's basically a strip pattern of various vegetables from different plant families arranged to reduce pests and diseases, optimize space and nutrient share whilst respecting the individual plant needs for space and light.
