From cows, to cement and manure, to abundant beans...

Our abundant bean stalk

The reason we decided to get cows initially, was to use their beautiful manure. However, Tom found that he was not using the manure, because it was too hard to get it from the paddocks. So he started bringing the cows into the cow yard (an enclosed space) every night, so he could harvest the manure. 

He had to set the yard up to cater for the cows at night. Then he found that because the yard had a dirt floor, he would pick up a lot of rocks and dirt whenever he harvested the manure in the morning. So he set out to concrete the cow yard, which he finished late last year. The manure harvesting process has taken us a few years, however now we have an abundance of cow manure. As an added bonus, the geese decided they would like to sleep with the cows as well, so we have goose manure to harvest every morning too!

He noticed a similar problem with the chickens (at around the same time) and decided he had to concrete the chicken pens as well, and then put a thick layer of sawdust on top, so that he could harvest their manure and have it mixed with sawdust, ready for composting. So now we combine chicken manure, cow manure, cut grass from the property and weeds to create a wonderful compost. The benefits of this compost we noticed today…

Our Bean harvest today; two big bowls full, enough for 5 big meals!

In the past few years we have had problems growing beans. Every year we tried again, and every year we failed. We would have a few beans here and there, but nothing to write home about. Today I harvested this enormous abundance off our bean vine, and there are still more beans coming on! Very exciting, all the hard work going into concreting the cow yard and chook pens has manifested itself in food abundance! The cyclic system is paying off!

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.
