Project: Church gardens for the local poor

Posted by Christopher Diamond over 9 years ago

First participant in the Church Gardens project

The Church of the Divine Love in Montrose, NY installed a sheet-mulched vegetable garden in the spring of 2010 in a convenient bit of lawn behind the church fellowship hall.  In their first season they were able to provide hundreds of servings of high-quality fresh vegetables to the Cortland Emergency Food Bank in Croton-on-Hudson, NY.

This year they are expanding their garden and planting several fruit trees.  A nursery school that meets in the church property is also becoming involved by starting seeds and planting and managing a single large raised bed.

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.
