Jim Kovaleski’s Grass-Fed Greenhouse in Maine!

Jim Kovaleski’s Grass-Fed Greenhouse in Maine!

Many of you have been waiting to see Jim Kovaleski’s grass-fed gardens up in Maine. He recently came up with the idea of the “Grass-Fed Greenhouse” and the results speak for themselves. Jim shows us that in just a short amount of time, the soil has a surplus of fertility all from very few amendments; mostly scythed grass!

Want to see more of Jim Kovaleski?! We filmed a Course with Jim. It’s called “The Grass-Fed Market Garden” ; this course is packed with exclusive information and is affordable! We are constantly adding more content to the course so be sure to check it out and learn from the Farming Master!

    These videos are great, love how he moved the greenhouse! Coleman used wheels or a tractor to pull it, Jim, just pick it up👊 and talk about innovation on creating great, fertile soil. You guys do make a great team! Pure motivation 👊

    Delicata is the good stuff, grew a plant this season and it turned out great.

  10. Dominic Howe on November 29, 2021 at 12:48 pm

    Amazing to see! Thanks for sharing Pete. Thanks Jim for all you do!
    Can’t wait to try this.

    Popcorn can be used to grind for corn meal to make tortillas and cornbread

  12. Barry Pete jr on November 29, 2021 at 12:49 pm

    Sorry…jim I meant

  13. Alfha Gahma on November 29, 2021 at 12:52 pm

    I would love to hear Mr Kovaleski quote Fukuoka San when evolving some of his core principles. It’s really inspiring to see these methods of straw mulching and chicken manure beeing used in different settings than in the rice/barley field such as this veggie market garden.

    I would like to know if you sow any seeds in the meadow from which you collect the scythed straw? I saw some clover and maybe some vetch in the other videos where you made your own bales.

    I’m a Zen Buddhist and have helped improve the food garden of some temples in East Asia for many years and I really like Mr Kovaleski underlying the fact that he is feeding up to 40-50 families which indeed is a community and not just petty bourgeois family hobby.

    I wrote earlier that I’m heading to the north of Spain to see if its possible to implement some of this scythe based natural farming over there. Hope to be able to tell you some good stories in not to long.

  14. househasfruits on November 29, 2021 at 12:55 pm

    Yes immune systems over vaccines. 🖤❤💛💚🖤

  15. G M on November 29, 2021 at 12:55 pm

    It’s fascinating to see him putting seaweed on the ground. I would’ve thought that all of the salt on it would kill plants in the garden but apparently it’s feeding everything very well. I love these videos and I’m always interested in what information Jim has to teach us.

  16. Josh Mann on November 29, 2021 at 12:57 pm

    Awesome man and awesome vibes just eminating through the screen once again but i must say that aint scaleable. Imagine if everyone on that coast started harvesting that amount of seaweed or even larger amounts for bigger veg growing farms. See you later eco system in no time.

  17. Amy Jones on November 29, 2021 at 12:57 pm

    I’m planning on trying this method with alfalfa next year. I don’t want a risk grass seed getting in my garden beds.

  18. Sonya Gregory on November 29, 2021 at 1:00 pm

    You Are The Man Jim!! What’s Up Uncle Pete!!Best Wishes From Western North Carolina!😊❤🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  19. Barry Pete jr on November 29, 2021 at 1:01 pm

    Was wondering if Pete has any slug issues because of the mulching

  20. Bob the Slacker on November 29, 2021 at 1:02 pm

    Ok, he’s using goat-waste & sea-plants too. I’ve been grass-feeding my raised-bed for about five years & have deficiencies in my 2-year-old citrus. Yard-waste alone just can’t max-out growth on its own, IME.

  21. drawnomology on November 29, 2021 at 1:02 pm

    I wish I could buy some nice Land.

  22. Scotto on November 29, 2021 at 1:02 pm

    Thank you Pete and Jim !! All your work is Brilliant !! Videos are Spectacular. True Educators of Nature. Fascinating 👍

  23. Kelly Clark on November 29, 2021 at 1:04 pm

    Loved every second of this!

  26. Getawaymoments on November 29, 2021 at 1:09 pm

    Jim is always awesome!

  27. Nashtark 111 on November 29, 2021 at 1:10 pm

    The French call it lasagna beds

    To compensate for the lack of hay it’s possible to use ramial wood chips made only of tree branches smaller than 2 inches of n diameter.

    Invented by a neighbor in the north.

    Be warned tho, the nitrogen hunger is very dramatic at first. Chicken manure works the best to load the wood chip in nitrogen.

  28. Autumn Meadows on November 29, 2021 at 1:11 pm

    excellent, thank you

  29. Sharon P. on November 29, 2021 at 1:12 pm

    Hey Pete! I’m loving the Jim Kovaleski videos!!! BTW….your location tag at the beginning of these videos should be "Down East Maine" not "East Maine". As a fellow Mainer….seeing East Maine makes me cringe. Luv what you do!!!

  30. Lita Ör on November 29, 2021 at 1:12 pm

    "You can gift things away if you feel abundant." To me this sentence is so comprehensive of plants and people, so basically nature, that it made me think of my job as a teacher as well, where I feel that I can have an impact on the ground that the students and their knowledge grow on. I can see that many did’t start in the best circumstances but still it doesn’t need anything artificial to "nurish" them but rather a basic human tone that trust in their will to cooperate and thrive. Thanks a million for sharing inspiration and insight in workinng with nature as a part of it!

  31. Steve's Outdoor World on November 29, 2021 at 1:13 pm

    Thank you so much Pete for sharing! You and Jim make a great team!

  32. Ramthian Thomson on November 29, 2021 at 1:15 pm

    Hello again!. Thanks.

  33. Charlotte King on November 29, 2021 at 1:15 pm

    Stunning! I guess the beans in the "3 sisters" planting weren’t doing much but I was curious to know what type was planted.

  34. carolyn moody on November 29, 2021 at 1:16 pm

    A WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE AN SO NEEDED. THANK YOU

  35. Ali H on November 29, 2021 at 1:16 pm

    I am loving the content with Jim! Will y’all be adding content to the grass fed market garden course?

  36. Southern Latitudes on November 29, 2021 at 1:16 pm

    We put in an original boat barn frame just like Jim did his greenhouse. It was removable if a hurricane came.

  37. Edison Bartolay on November 29, 2021 at 1:18 pm

    Hey Jim. Ur fan here in the Philippines. I’m a woman who love to planting organic vegetables. I only made my own organic soil made of hay, banana branches, karabaw manure and madre cacao leaves. Let earthworm rotten it 4 about 8mos. If it is castings I used to plant at all. I love purplish white corn. In our place here it’s very hard work of being organic but it’s ok at least it has no chemical at all. God bless us all Jim.

  38. tcotroneo on November 29, 2021 at 1:18 pm

    I love Jim’s perspectives and his strong work ethic.. I follow similar protocols, where I do a lot of physical labor on my property without any heavy machinery.. You get a deep connection with your land and those are the best moments when you brainstorm new ideas.. And think of the numerous health benefits.

  39. Foodpimpz on November 29, 2021 at 1:18 pm

  40. Kenneth Latimer on November 29, 2021 at 1:21 pm

    I struggle so in south Florida. It seems Jim’s thumb is so green, he cannot fail. You go boy!

  41. Laura Monahan on November 29, 2021 at 1:21 pm

    Is there a way to do this without seaweed? I live near the coast but not sure it’s legal to collect.

  42. Leaning Palm Ranch on November 29, 2021 at 1:22 pm

    Love all the great info from you and Jim! You guys are great!

  43. Logan Sutton on November 29, 2021 at 1:23 pm

    Is that a giant pigeon behind jims head @ 5:20?

  44. Holzmann on November 29, 2021 at 1:23 pm

    "Grass-Fed" (includes inconceivable amount of goat manure, seaweed, and chicken processing waste)

  45. Sonya Gregory on November 29, 2021 at 1:24 pm

  46. Jim DeArruda on November 29, 2021 at 1:26 pm

    Question: If the hay is always moved to restore fertility in the gardens how do you restore fertility in the fields? Thank you for your documentation of this important movement.

  47. Jackie Kitchen—No Words Needed on November 29, 2021 at 1:28 pm

    Thanks for sharing Jim’s story, he is world of knowledge. I truly enjoy what he does. Very smart man and he is not afraid of hard work.

  48. DeepFuckingAbundance on November 29, 2021 at 1:29 pm

    love it , so epic

  49. Mikowacomet on November 29, 2021 at 1:30 pm

    Raccoons don’t like to step on squash leaves, it pokes their feet. Porcupine is delicious, eat them.

  50. Bo McGillacutty on November 29, 2021 at 1:31 pm

    NO disrespect, Good Grief Jim takes on enough, not everything is going to get done, but I *hate wading thru weeds* in an intensive use space. 7:55 Everything is just harder like that.
    Seriously impressed with the safety rebar caps!…great move there as trivial as it may seem it’s not and I’d likely fail that test.
    Fascinating vid.
