Evolution of Mandala-Lauburu-Garden: some pictures taken during this summer



Since we did the mandala garden based on the shape of Lauburu we've been taking pictures of how it evolves, we included some below to see how it looks. If you want to know how it was designed and its construction we have two previous articles in which we described in some detail. Later add other one to view more details on how we did the irrigation system, drainage corridors, etc..

The picture below is taken from a window of the house, we see the environment in which it is located. Between the garden and the house is an area full of brambles that we cleaned and prepared to put another garden next year, based on the technique of Sepp Holzer Hugelkultur.

Mandala-Lauburu-Garden I

Here we see a closer picture, in which we see crops in the garden: peppers, tomatoes, carrots, zucchini, chard, arugula, some cabbage and leek. Everything we obtained directly from seed. Some vegs we have problems (lettuce, for example), for that reason we bought sprots to keep trying until we improve the technique. You can also see that the corridors, are not fully prepared.

Mandala-Lauburu-Garden II

The picture below was taken in September, and we can see the chestnut, hazel and oak trees near the orchard, with acorns and chestnuts to fall, this happens here in mid-October. Tomatoes were damaged by mildew, we have not thrown Bordeaux mixture or anything, but it rained some days and that affected them. Neighbors tell me it is difficult to grow tomatoes here, that only does well one year out of five. I hope we can improve the statistical :)

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.



A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.

Male memberFemale member

Permaculture Matchmaker

One of these badges will show if you select your gender and the "I'm single, looking for a permaculture partner" option in your profile.



People who claim to have taken a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course somewhere in the world.


PDC Verified

People who have entered an email address for the teacher of their PDC course, and have had their PDC status verified by that teacher. Watch their updates for evaluation.



People who’ve taken a Permaculture Research Institute PDC somewhere in the world.


PDC Teacher

People who claim to teach some version of PDC somewhere in the world.


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.
