Project: Permaculture Siebzger

Posted by Sven Horner over 13 years ago

Shrubs planted, little pond, woody swale path, stone bed and rock pile established. Photos and explanations.

PrimulaSpring has arrived. This little primula that came here naturally, shows it. It grows right to the rock pile I made to attract reptilians, a blindworm in the best case. Blindworms are said to live to 90% on slugs.

On the picture on the right you can see this rock pile in the background. Right next to the little pond I only recently established as well. For now the earthworks for the 3 keyhole mound beds and the stone bed (foreground) have also been finished.

I decided to keep those little trees growing around the pond, not knowing what they are, because I needed shelter for eventual reptilians but didn't want to invest in something because the just planted elderberry will do this part when grown big enough.

At the moment Im planning what plants go into the pond. Ive come to water chestnut, arrowhead and azolla for now. Not shure what I should place around the pond. But of course I need to provide more shelter. Behind the pond, right to the rock pile we placed some rotten wood with moss on top. Behind that Im gonna plant salad burnet (especially for shelter) and yellow chamomile (especially for attracting insects = fodder for reptilians).

Below you can see the shrubs I planted, namely (in the same order):
Elaeagnus multiflora, russian olive, Elaeagnus x ebbingei, wolfberry, worcesterberry, blackcurrants, gooseberry, elderberry, japanese wineberry, dwarf quince and crowberries. Those are all part of the walnut guild, thus they're all resistant to juglone. The walnut guild is one of the basics for the whole design. Some of th plants, especially those of the ribes genus and the japanese wineberry are already beginning to foliate. Im excited.

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.
