Permaculture Mochizuki Small-scale No-till Cereal Production Course

Project: Permaculture Mochizuki Permaculture Research Farm & Demonstration Site

Posted by Nick Sikorski 2 months ago

As a means of increasing interest in permaculture and promoting self-sufficiency, we started a no-till cereal production course in September of 2020. Divided into six half-day events, the course aims to teach how to grow a variety of winter cereals (the participants get to choose from rye, spelt or Japanese wheat) without either machines or chemical fertilisers and for home consumption.

The six steps are:

1. Bed preparation and soil-building
2. Seed sowing
3. Planting out
4. Weed management
5. Harvest
6. Post-harvest

For each part of the course the students come together on the Permaculture Mochizuki Research Farm & Demonstration Site and participate in each type of work being taught. Once they have a good idea of what to do and how to do it, they can then go home to their own gardens/fields and repeat the same process. For the second step - seed sowing - they sow their seeds (in cell trays) on the farm and take the cell tray home with them. At the end of the course they have the option of the course they have the option of processing their grain on the farm or keeping it as seed for the following year.

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.
