3 generations picking potatoes - recalling last summer holidays

Project: Mountain Steep Permaculture - Permacultura em Declive de Montanha

for hundreds of years grandparents, parents and children would live together and there was no separation between work and play time!

For hundreds of years grandparents, parents and children would live together and there was no separation between work and play time!

In a regenerative system each (group or individual) activity is multifunctional and each element participating has many functions.

This photos are from last summer - August 2012 - family gathering in the field for potatoe picking, that lasted for about 2 hours.

All this children (grandsons and cousins) were in the village for summer holidays in the grandparents home. For the rest of the year they live in the city.

Potatoe plant stems and leaves (some already whithered) had been cut a few days before and used to feed the goats. After being cut they wither for 1 or 2 days and only then are given to the goats or sheep.

 







 


Picture of potatoe plant roots. Potatoes were planted in April, the soil around them was raked to kill weeds and break soil water capillary evaporation and were mulched only before the first flood irrigation, and then continued irrigated in June, July and August, until one week or so before harvest.

After this the soil was prepared to plant palm cabbage seedlings. Compost was not added at this start stage for the cabbage.

The preparation was to open about 12-14 swales, 30 cms apart, 4 metres long, 20 cm deep and wide.

After, seedlings were planted in the trench and flood irrigated until the return of the rainy season (1 to 2 months after).

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

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.
