Backyard Food Forest (and adventure-zone)

Project Type

Urban, Residential

Project Summary

Reclaim landfill to establish visual order and subsequent use as a food forest.

Project Description

One acre backyard shared by two property owners historically in discord over its use. Reestablished soil from eroded sections by building a drainage channel and setting up a series of seven shelfs on a steep slope leading to a creek below. Changing the direction of the sheet run off and providing deposition areas enabled me to revise the flow of the creek and avoid a bottleneck. A natural log bridge is planned to enable visitors access to both sections and provides a more neighborly, child friendly vista from a cul-de-sac at the entry.

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.
