Winter 2013 Fencing Project

Project: Campbell Family Farm

Posted by Jason Campbell about 7 years ago

When we purchased this raw plot of land, there was no border fencing on the perimeter of the property. Hunters and neighbors frequently trespassed with four wheelers and large predators namely Coyotes were free to run across the land.

When we purchased this raw plot of land in May 2013 there
was no border fencing on the perimeter of the property. Hunters and neighbors
frequently trespassed with four wheelers and large predators namely Coyotes
where free to run across the land.

I spent all fall and winter clearing the farm boundary lines and putting the fence up around the perimter of the farm.
All fencing posts were cut onsite from Texas Juniper/Mountain Cedar trees. This was
beneficial to us as it accomplished several purposes.

I pretty muched cleared and put the 11 acrea fence up all myself with a 14" cheap Poulan Chainsaw and a post hole digger.

1) Mountain Cedar trees are known water hogs. They steel water from other beneficial plants and can tap into the water table. Eliminating as many Mountain Cedars as we can will be beneficial for long term water conservation.

2) We want to minimize the amount of materials brought onto the farm from outside sources. Using native trees from on the farm eliminates expensive material and transportation costs of those materials. All we had to pay for was the fencing and fencing staples.

3) The remaining parts of the Mountain Cedar
trees not used for fencing will be fed into our wood chipper to make cedar
mulch for animal bedding. The Mountain Cedar contains a growth inhibitor so we don’t
want to use the mulch around other plants, but this Mountain Cedar does have a
natural bug repellant that makes it ideal for animal bedding mulch.

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.
