Project: Urban small lot Food Forest

Posted by George Coe II almost 9 years ago

Started to build Hugelkultur that will also act as a swale.

I started to build my Hugelkultur that will also act a a swale along the North side property line.  I dug a ditch that is one shovel length deep and two wide along side our fence. I am taking down a tree and have some old wood that has been stacked up for a few years.  I was going to use it for fire wood for camping, but it always seemed to stack up faster than I could burn it.  I mixed in some smaller twigs and added some leaf compost to help fire things up a bit. I got 1/3 of the way down the fence line working about 6 hours. Hope to get the rest done in the next week or so. I have plants on the way soon, so I need to get it done before they get here.

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.
