Project: DESIGN FARM (Gekas Residence)
Posted by Robert Glinn about 8 years ago
Design Option #1 is a succession based, perennial, tree centric plan with emphasis on high market value crops. The tree crops are comprised primarily of select hardwoods with inter plantings of select crops, such as chestnut cultivars and/or clumping bamboo. The trees are densely planted to be selectively cut at later dates, to better maximize yields. The spacing of the rows shall accommodate vehicles and/or other equipment for harvest and maintenance.
The cabins alternately branch off a primary road that extends from 119th St. to the new pond on the back nine acres. Each cabin location defines a region of specialty crops planted in rows or clusters. Pathways (dashed lines) follow and cut through the rows and segment the property into smaller regions, thus allowing for ease of planning and management.
At the top of the hill sits a newly excavated pond, similar in size to one at the NW corner of the back nine. The pond may function as a lined, natural swimming pool and/or fish farm. By locating the pond at this location, allows for easier excavation and serves the water needs of the barn and can support all cabins, gravity-fed.

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.
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.
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.
People who claim to teach some version of PDC somewhere in the world.
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.
