Dry mulching is our way Dave, not by choice but by necessity due to the fact we are physically unable to do heavy digging and weeding. We do compost and use humus and soil foods where possible. Our soil is full of earth worms which is a good sign of healthy soil.
Interesting is the word.
What is at stake, I think, is a complete shift in thinking about how we see soil and its ecology.
It also raises a few questions over Australia's obsession with dry mulching.
Interesting video, as you say -diversity in plants is the answer. Nature actually teaches us these things as well, but we can help it along the way.
