Ute Bohnsack : Yum is right! James, what materials did you use to build the fruit cage? I'm asking because we keep loosing most or all our soft fruit to birds - and we have about 50 bushes in all and had a bumper crop this year. Once again, it was gone before it was ripe. :( Before our site was so ecologically diverse we got more soft fruit. Win some, loose some. But I do like my morning fruit and my jam so I'm thinking of protecting a few bushes at least.

James Reid : Hi Ute, good to hear from you. I managed to get two old gazebo frames(metal)which I wired together to make one cage frame. I then used good quality bird netting to cover the frame and built a wooden door frame, again covered with netting. We still get the occasional bird in there (somehow?!)but it certainly keeps the fruit safe.

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.
