Nottinghill Forest Garden Overview 2010-2014

Project: Nottinghill Edible Forest Garden

Posted by Joshua Finch over 6 years ago

After almost 10 months of off and on work, a project overview has finally been completed that follows the project from initiation all the way through my visit this summer 2014 when we planted fruit trees for the first time!

As you may know I’ve been working on a final paper of sorts that covers the project at my parent’s place in North Carolina, USA

The paper covers some basics of permaculture design and walks through what happened for each year. While it is very long (147 pages), most of it is comprised of photographs or figures so don’t be too intimidated. This is not a “how to” kind of book. It is a story about what we decided to do and why. There is no preface: it just jumps right on into the process.

 

I’ve tried to keep the file size down (the entire thing in one file is still only the size of a single RAW image from my camera) by compressing the images. You can still zoom in quite a bit if things look fuzzy. If everything still looks fuzzy, try opening the file with your internet browser. Yes, seriously, your internet browser is a better PDF viewer than, say, Mac OS X’s Preview when it comes to images.

 

Feel free to share the link if you want, but please do not upload any of this to your own pages without asking me first. 

 

The following link will take you to a folder with two options. Option A has the entire thing in one PDF file. Choose this if you want it read it through at once and are prepared to have your computer lag a little. Option B has a file for each chapter, for a total of 6 files. They are named so that if you download them all and you have your files sorted by name (which is normal), they will be in the right order.

 

Here is the link:

Happy holidays! Soon the sun will make its way back to us :)

Justin Hitt : Wow. Nice write-up. I'm in Martinsville VA which has a wet version of your climate. Your finger pond off a walkway gave me an idea for a spot in my garden I hadn't quite found a match. Keep up the great work. -- Justin

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.
