Project: Urban small lot Food Forest

Posted by George Coe II about 10 years ago

Chickens, water catchment barrels, more wood for Hugelkultur, some plants have arrived.

We went and purchased six hens at the local farm store last week. They are still in the brooder and will be for a few more weeks. We still need to build the coop and hen house. Have to hurry on that now that they are here they are growing fast. A new experience for me and my family.

Picked up some 55 gallon barrels for water catchment. I plan on having about 12 barrels when finished. This will give me 660 gallons of water on reserve if needed once full.

I trimmed off a bunch more wood from our front tree. More wood for the Hugelkulturs. Lots of them to do still.

Our strawberry's, raspberry and black berry plants arrived today. I was not expecting them anytime soon so I had to stop what I was doing and start to get them planted. I am going to plant the strawberry's in a self watering system. The raspberry and black berry are going in next to the plants we planted last year. 

We also got some seeds planted and placed into our cold frame. This is a experiment to see if we can start seeds earlier in the cold frame. The cold frame I built last year to see how it would work through the winter for my lettuce and chard plants. They survived with no problem. We even had two weeks where the temperature did not go above 20F and the nights got to 0 or below and no sun. I did have two 60 watt bulbs on at night, but everything lived.

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.



A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.

Male memberFemale member

Permaculture Matchmaker

One of these badges will show if you select your gender and the "I'm single, looking for a permaculture partner" option in your profile.



People who claim to have taken a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course somewhere in the world.


PDC Verified

People who have entered an email address for the teacher of their PDC course, and have had their PDC status verified by that teacher. Watch their updates for evaluation.



People who’ve taken a Permaculture Research Institute PDC somewhere in the world.


PDC Teacher

People who claim to teach some version of PDC somewhere in the world.


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.
