When is the best time to plant a tree? I get this question often, and I always have the same answer, “20 years ago”.
“It is good for a man to bear the yoke in his youth” Lamentations 3:27
Imagine for a moment, the Garden of Eden. Walk through the garden, and take in the splendor of God’s design. Discover the birds and lizards eating insects from leaves so they don’t spoil. See how He put the legume trees and beans fixing nitrogen into the soil, feeding the hundreds of different fruit varieties, with many fruits always in season. Notice the complete, and total abundance of never wanting for anything. Adam and Eve had total food security, and total food abundance. Everything functioned as per God’s design, until the fall. Then, man began to till the soil. Well I have some news for you. God’s design for Eden still works, and it’s called Permaculture. So put down that soil killing plow, and read how God designed the world to live in harmony and abundance, while simultaneously taking care of His glorious Creation.
