AKUTUN

Project Type

Residential, Community, Demonstration, Permaculture Local Group/Transition Town/Permablitz

Project Summary

El proyecto se desarrolla en un predio de 2.200 metros cuadrados ubicados en un loteo aún sin urbanizar en la zona de la Ventania. Se propone instalar un espacio habitable para el hombre con mínimas perturbaciones al ecosistema del lugar, propiciando un contacto cotidiano con los ciclos de la naturaleza, como fuente fundamental de conocimiento y crecimiento de la humanidad.

Project Description

Luego de delimitar el terreno, comenzamos a pensar forestacion del lugar, a fin de que los árboles seleccionados brinden proteccion  de los vientos, y tambien futuro alimento. La seleccion de las especies es una tarea compleja, que aun la seguimos llevando adelante. Dado que se trata de una zona de pastizal, no hay especies nativas que prosperen formando montes o bosques, y se requiere la intervencion humana para ello. Entre las primeras especies plantadas prosperaron cipreses que delimitan uno de los bordes. Actualmente estan desarrollandose unas 60 unidades, entre cipreses, kiris, paraisos, sauces, ciruelos, nogales, acacias, fresnos y ceibos.

La única construccion que nos brinda abrigo es un octogono realizado en piedra del lugar de unos 50 metros cuadrados, con un sector de servicios (provision de agua y excretas). El sistema elegido para las excretas humanas es el baño seco, con excelentes resultados evaluados luego de más de un año de uso.

El calentamiento del agua para uso humano se realiza a traves de un termotante solar.

Hemos iniciado una incipiente huerta, donde ya estamos cosechando hierbas (oregano, perejil, menta), ajos. cebollas y calabazas.

Estamos felices de haber llegado hasta aquí, y esperamos seguir avanzando en el proyecto junto con los compañeros y compañeras de la comarca que nos visitan, nos apoyan y comparten nuestros sueños. Y estamos especialmente felices de la llegada de Tierra Martinez y Bety, que junto a sus hijas apostaron a sembrar semillas permaculturales en estos maravillosos lares.

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.
