Country permaculture project

Project Type

Rural, Demonstration

Project Summary

Transforming 2000 square meters, flat land, in a abundent and diverse food forest, with a very productive annual garden, perenial vegetables and many medicinal plants and herbs.

Project Description

The land is situated in southern Romania, in the plains, where are hot, dry summers and cold winters with heavy snow. On field were some nitrogen-fixing trees (robinia pseudoacacia), few of them old, a house built of adobe bricks, some big nuts, two large apricots, few plums, few prunus cerasifera and many grapes.   I started by planting nitrogen fixing trees (albizia julibrissin, robinia pseudoacacia, laburnum anagyroides, caragana arborescens, eleagnus angustiflora) among a variety of fruit trees (peach, quince, nectarines, apple, cherry, apricot, plum, medlar, prunus cerasus, hawthorn, amelanchier, pear, mulberry, chestnut, walnut, hazelnut) between  the trees I put fruit bushes (black, red, white currant, gooseberry, aronia melanocarpa, goji, strawberry, raspberry, sea buckthorn, elderberry) , on the ground level I planted annual and perennial ground covers to fix nitrogen in the soil and for mulch.We intend to increase the number and diversity of fruit trees each year, also to have different cultivars from each type of tree with early and late ripening. We have a worm farm to fertilize the garden, we make more compost with method Berkley, we want to attach to the house a glass house and a shade house to produce cuttings, also to cool down the house in summer and heating in winter, in order to reduce energy consumption.We intend to collect water in a large tank to use it for drinking and for watering the garden with drip lines.

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.
