Since permaculture is also organic we don't use any chemicals on anything. This means we need another way to control bugs that bother our garden plants. Birds eat lots of bugs so we should do our best to make friends with some birds. I put birdhouses all over my yard.
This is my very first visitor. I should point out too that if you put the houses or a post out in your garden, then when the birds poop, they are adding nitrogen to your garden. I have seen one garden where the post can be moved around depending on where you need the nitrogen. Permaculture is all about many uses for everything.
My whole family helped in the birdhouse making. We made a day of it. We all sat down together and painted and then I fed everyone dinner. It was a nice family gathering and I got quite a few nice painted birdhouses out of it. I think we will do it again next year.
