"The most useful service we can render a culture is to add a new plant to its agriculture."
Thomas Jefferson

Bamboo is the perfect new plant for the farm looking to add perennial crops to its product line. Bamboo shoots are high value fresh or frozen vegetables that are harvested in late spring; bamboo poles are hardwoods that are harvested in winter.

Bamboo is easy for the organic farmer to grow. Plant bamboo in abandonned berry fields or fields where winter floods damage the soil or any place on the farm where it is inconvenient to farm annual crops. Bamboo can be a buffer between other crops or livestock or neighbors or roads. It is useful planted where soil is eroding, or between wetlands and pasture or cropland, or as a crop to make use of nitrogen and water from manure lagoons.

On a hot summer day, rest in the cool green shade of bamboo, the plant that produces food and wood faster than trees.
