Project: Mountain Steep Permaculture - Permacultura em Declive de Montanha

Posted by João Gonçalves over 9 years ago

the early stages of a perenial edible landscape within the green-house microclimate - creating the conditions for the pleasure of co-creation and learning from nature evolutions

Chão Sobral is pretty much a cherry tree lanscape,

with many rocky slopes facing north ... so ...

Towards a subtropical edible dance - we have the conditions to start this learning travel in plant growth:

- soil - (on a terrace, good drainage)

- water - flood irrigation

- polytunnel

- subtropical plants

- management (within the zone 1-2 forest-garden)

- sun and shade (the green house is shaded by nearby trees and schist house wall)

The growth dance has begun - we have invited these guest stars

- grafted and non grafted avocado
- grafted cherimoya anona
- lemon
- strawberry guava
- kumquat - a dwarf citrus
- pepino dulce
- lemon grass
- verbena
- aloe
- passion fruit
- physalis
- Yacóns: Smallanthus sonchifolius, Syn.: Polymnia edulis, P.
sonchifolia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yac%C3%B3n)
- jerusalem artichoke
- tamarillo - brazil tomatoe - tree tomato

soon with arms intertwined

it will get hot and colorful

 

for now

It is located on the ridge crest, next to the old track and water channel. The area is called "Linhar" meaning linen field. It is now becoming a forest of food and a place to rest during the hot summer afternoon.

Ute Bohnsack : Wow!!! The stonewall on the back is brilliant. Did you build it inside or was it an existing structure? The blue barrels and 5 l water containers look familiar ... :) Great heat storage.

João Gonçalves : Hi! Good point: the stone wall on the west side belongs to a house built with those small schist stones and clay as mortar in 1887! All containers are 20 ltrs size, and i'd like to add more ... All plants are growing well except for the pepino dulce that has been attacked by the tiny red spider plague. It has been removed. Now we also have sweet potato as a ground cover growing fast, we will eat the leaves. Outside temp. are around 15ºC at night as 2nd of August 2013.

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.
