Question:

If “Forests maintain the crumb structure” how do we get crumb structure in our annual gardens? What is the practical use of this thinking outside of forest gardening? There are no trees in the kitchen garden or the main crop fields are we not trying to build crumb structure?

About Permaculture:

Permaculture (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permaculture) integrates land, resources, people and the environment through mutually beneficial synergies – imitating the no waste, closed-loop systems seen in diverse natural systems. Permaculture applies holistic solutions that are applicable in rural and urban contexts and at any scale. It is a multidisciplinary toolbox including agriculture, water harvesting and hydrology, energy, natural building, forestry, waste management, animal systems, aquaculture, appropriate technology, economics, and community development.
