San Jacinto Community Garden ~ Monarch Waystation

Project: Permaculture Galveston

Posted by Dana Crawford over 5 years ago

A butterfly garden, which also serves as a permaculture demonstration site, will be implemented this Spring.

San Jacinto Community Garden is the oldest community garden on Galveston Island. On a single narrow city lot, it boasts a historic Rosenberg Fountain, a lovely shaded arbor with picnic tables, a chicken coop, and 10 garden plots. The Rosenberg Fountain is unique in that it is designed with three separate basins to serve water for dogs and horses, as well as people.

When I first met the garden manager, Kay Sandor, we talked about creating a Monarch Waystation in the front of the garden, along the street, in the "nature strip". This project is moving forward with a planned installation this Spring. Funds are pledged from both gardeners and friends of the garden. We will make a presention about the project at the San Jacinto Neighborhood Association meeting on April 8th. This is the first public project I have designed and will be implementing. Permaculture features that will be incorporated are rainwater harvesting and multi-functional plants for the butterflies of Galveston County and people too.

I wish you the same success in your permaculture projects....Dana

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

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.
