Many beds ready to be planted

Project: Demonstration garden for the dry tropics in the highlands of Nicaragua

Posted by Gregory Amos over 7 years ago

We finished almost all beds, now we have to create a seedbed. The rainy season has just stared, the timing is perfect.

Below are the pictures of the garden. First we design it with the walking paths. Above all paths we will put a kind of treillis, in order to create a big pergola to shade our visitors (the tropical sun is hot).

Jeff Higgins : Hi Gregory. Great to know you're out there. We have a 20 manzana farm in the municipality of Mozonte in Nueva Segovia, which makes us nearly neighbors. We're just laying the ground for the earthworks. Maybe we could meet at some point and exchange ideas?

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.
