Project: Michael Smith's (Brother's) Property

Posted by Norman Joseph Smith about 7 years ago

earthworks etc

Hi all

Most of the earthworks have been done and I have nearly finished shaping and mulching the vegetable garden.

The new chicken coop/pen has been made, which is uphill of the vegetable garden.

Grey water is diverted to the four trenches of the vegetable garden. It can be rotated.

The windmill is out. It's too expensive, but a diesel pump bought a while ago, which was sitting in the shed is going to take its place. High pressure pipe salvaged from a construction site rubbish heap is almost enough for the pump to move the dam water half way around the property, including to the vegetable garden and the fruit trees.

Two rain water tanks arrived yesterday and have been placed on the concrete slabs which we laid last week.

Best wishes

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.
