This short case study explores the relationship between farming, plants, animals, soil fertility, and health. The Houses use kin-centric, indigenous agro-forestry techniques to manage their organic fruit orchard, Coco Ranch, in California. This study will be of interest to those contemplating resilient ecological systems, local and subsistence agriculture, and living in harmony with the Earth.
