Project: Forest garden Bogata Suma
Posted by Barbara Scheltus - van den Berg almost 10 years ago
Good news about the forest garden! Peter sawed out the last sun-blocking non-fruit, non-nut trees, so now there are only multi-useful trees left. Mark is gathering the wood for our stove and mulching the small branches for the paths. And our newest volunteer Kenza, who studies landscape design, is helping us to finalize the design and specs for our forest garden.
We measured the area and Kenza made a good map of it, with all the (cherry & sweet chestnut) trees that stay there, the shady & sunny parts et cetera.And now that it is raining, we take the opportunity to make a list of trees, shrubs, herbs and perennial vegetables that we want in our forest garden. Kenza looks them up in the books and makes a spreadsheet with the plants and their specifications so we know when to plant them, what kind of soil it needs, how sun/shade tolerant the plant is, when to prune it and so on.
In the coming days we'll finalize the design and then we start "installing" the forest garden! I'm so looking forward to it.
O yes, by the way: the forest garden area is 30 meters wide and 180 meters long and now we're only working on the first 30x30 meters. So we're looking forward to hosting many more "Kenza's"!

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