At the Mida station I plan to buy some pines for one dollare each and bring them up on the hill. They are special for this climate. The shelter looks great, and there is a path cut down to Vincents house. June 2014. Tropical Interns needed.

The idea of a small display model was found on the Permaculture Global website. The video has a speed time lapse segment to watch the construction, then some explanation as to how it could be planted.

After (and during) digging our first swale we planted it with a small variety of baby trees. Some seem to be taking hold quite nice, but for example half of the oranges planted have been robbed of all their leaves (leafcutter ants??). For ground cover we did not yet have many options, so we used ...

Hi all I stayed in Chile for two months, then came back to my brother's property and did more implementation. Unfortunately they did not continue looking after the vegetable seedlings as they said they would and all died in place, either in the veggie garden or the greenhouse. Only the basi...

Rural Permaculture
Next to a constabulary in rural Sullivan County you'll find the cross roads where scenic route 97 passes through and Route 55 begins. This is damaged soil and typical disempowered rural economy and all the ignorance to natural capital that comes with it.

Here it is after about two months growth.  With all the nitrogen fixers, the trees are really taking off!

This spring I dug and cover cropped my first two small swales.  Later on, the fruit trees were delivered and planted.  2 apples, 2 plums, 2 pawpaws and an almond. I added comfrey, potatoes, lemon balm and other herbs to the cover crop of vetch, clover and field peas.  I also planted squash...

So, we are working with our worms and using what they produce to feed our plants. We also have been experimenting with the mushrooms in the spent coffee grinds and are working to make them grow bigger. Now the days are long(24hours) and we are hoping to get permission to grow outside soon to expa...

Plenty of waste is available for supplying resources for making a family home. This is a picture diary of my attempts to build a Mobile Tiny Home with minor construction experience.   This is a old Camper Trailer that someone wanted to toss. The deconstruction took 6 days. Thankfully the Westlak...

Living in the Semi-Tropics with a suns angle constantly changing from season to season large trees tend to block most of the rays in the winter. Due to this barrier and my getting older/lazier I've decided to elevate all problems by placing a floating greenhouse on the lake behind the house....

The 2 Mulberry Northrop Morus alba that were planted in 2013 as 3 foot trees look to have died back to within a few inches of the ground. Most of the 1000+- asparagus plants that were planted this year have come up through the 2 inches of soil with many of them a foot tall. I added some leave...

It was a great week-end, nice weather, meaningful conversations and just a few black flies! 11 interns from Solutionera.com, our partner in the summer courses, arrived on thursday to help prepare the grounds, cook meals for 25 people and pretty up the place. Everything was ready for the intense ...
