installing permaculture design

Posted by david spicer about 5 years ago

Installing a permaculture design in remote aboriginal community of NT OZ

a good friend of my Craig Gallagher had been working at Wadeye NT for 12 months when a contract to [landscape] the new boarding house for remote high school student came up

so he put in a quote, under the conventional lawns and sprinkelers price ,but as it was the fedaral goverment funding the project they were not sure if this permaculture thing would work

so he sent a copy of greening the dessert and done, we got them to go for it.

the site is 4.5 arces we put in 400m of swale over a 1000 fruit and support trees trained up a local guy to manage the site
