East Ismailof Island Permaculture homesite

Project Type

Rural, Residential

Project Summary

This project is the evolution of a home site on 1/10th of an acre on an island cliff in Alaska's Kachemak bay. Focus is passive solar design, rainwater harvesting, and food forest.

Project Description

My wife and are living on 1/10 of an acre on a 3/4 acre property. I have converted a sauna to a passive solar cabin and we are harvesting rainwater. We have some small garden beds, and a greywater mulch basin, and are just beginning to establish a food forest. We use a typical outhouse with sawdust added after every use and plan to harvest the fertility on a long cycle. We would like to increase the rainwater harvesting capacity of the property for garden water and convert to sustainable sources of electricity and cooking fuel, as well as expand garden space and productivity. Ismailof Island is a rural setting but the immediate feel of the project site is more suburban with 2 other houses less than 100 feet from ours.

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.
