Stage 1 - Location and Planning

Project: wandoo ridge food forest

Posted by Klifford J Fyshwick about 10 years ago

Finding a location and planning are the first steps in creating a food forest

I have chosen a site for the food forest its acually quite hard to find a site on 450ac of bushland, lucky its open woodland and the site I've chosen is gonna be close to the house and is in need of rehabilitation anyway, it of course needs lots of work its gonna be about 40m x 40m, its white sand with possible gravel and clay sub soils some eucalyptus wandoo present on outskirts which could cause some problems their roots give off poison to stop other plants growing near them.

First stages I have marked out area and will now plant out some Acacia saligna (which were ordered last year through a local grower) around boundry to help form a hardy fast growing wind break as well as fixing some nitrogen back into the soil.

Will also look @ setting up a small garden shed mainly for water collecting and a tank, will start with a 4,000 litre fiberglass and see how we go through summer, we also have 8,000 litres at campsite I can draw off using a 1,000 litre tank on trailor so can be moved into position.I'll be using a gravity fed trickle feed system with a battery operated timer with drippers.

Also will be looking at where the swales run and experiment with planting as well as sourcing local straw and manure this sand will be very hungry check out picture, anyway more soon...

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

pri_teacher

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
