Project: 895 Ducklake Road

Posted by Anthony Hope over 9 years ago

construction timeline of 5 weeks to completion and additional 2 weeks to planting.

 hand built with the aids of dodge 3/4 ton, shovel, pick, & great neighbors!  Huglebeds were built just slightly off contour to slow drainage of the land.  These beds were installed directly beneath the 'turf' layer.  The turf was shell-scraped and set aside for later use.  Hurley wood logs were then heaped and stacked and woven together to provide the base.  I chose to utilize local neighboring farm wastes and input green goat & sheep manure.  Topsoil used was from an excavation at a neighboring farm (ditch that was dug).  I used maybe 6-8 inches as a top dress.  Then beds were mulched heavy and allowed to 'cook' for a couple of weeks prior to bedding out transplant plantings for that year.  The first year plant listings were:

vegetables:

150+ heirloom tomatos (5 varieties)

30 pepper plants (4 varieties of sweet and hot)

heritage non gmo corn

organic oats, peas, vetch mix

beets (2 varieties)

celeriac

cabbage (red & white)

leeks

onions (not many planted, all multipliers)

cucurbit - cucumbers (2 varieties)

raddish (trap crop)

flowers (or encouraged polycultures):

red ylw org marigold

astek nicotianna

sunflower

mint (2 varieties)

catnip

calendula

nasturtium

lamb's quarter

red rooted amaranth

sunberries

red & white clover

mushrooms

dandelion

mullen

bamboo

and possibly more... wild.

Anthony Hope : The mean annual precipitation is 631.1 mm (24.85 in) in mid-town, but the area has a rather steep precipitation gradient which is reflected in regional ecosystems. Wynndel for example, experiences slight differences in precipitation due to its close proximity to duck lake water body.

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.
