Mulching Techniques in La Gomera

Mulching with fresh leaves on a community farm in La Gormera

Mulching is one of the essential techniques to keep the soil life active. In La Gomera it is generally warm, and the most important function of the mulch is to prevent evaporation of water from the soil. If the soil is bare, the sun will directly heat it up and cause a lot of evaporation. Covering the soil prevents this. In addition, the fresh leaves will start decomposing and activate and feed the soil.
