Permaculture Paddock Paradise

Project Type

Rural, Residential

Project Summary

The aim of this project is to create a small 2.5ac horse property which will sustain 3 horses and their owners. Providing fooder and food and eliminating, as much as possible, the need to buy in feed for the animals and produce for us humans.

Project Description

The aim of this project is to turn a 2.5ac semi-rural block into an efficienthorse property, supporting 3 horses and their owners without the need to buy in feed and produce.

Currently the property is managed using Jaime Jacksons principle of Paddock Paradise, with a track around the perimeter and feed stations along it to encourage movement of the horses. Hay is put out using small mesh/slow feeder hay nets, but all feed for the horses has to be bought in as there is not really any pasture. At best there is a green pick.

The current lay-out of the property

The plan is to create Fodder forests for the horses with various fodder trees and bushes. The arena could also double as a cropping pasture area, especially during the cooler months.

The Plan

We also want to establish a vegetable garden and a food forests for us humans. We have 2 gray water tanks and want to use this water source more efficiently rather then having it run off, as it does at the moment.

Revision, indecision or analysis paralysis?

Every time I look at my place I change my mind on how to do things, where to plant things, or even what to plant. Is it revision, indecision or simply analysis paralysis?

The start of the fodder forest

5 corms of Queensland Arrowroot went into the ground today, and the scarified Tagasaste seeds got put into pots.

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.
