The Urban Garden Project Crowd-Funder on Indiegogo

Project: PRI New Zealand (Koanga Institute)

Posted by Kat Gawlik over 5 years ago

Our Urban Garden project's aim is to research how we can best feed our family a nutrient dense diet and be food secure on 200m². We have started a crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo to help us to develop the garden further and publish our results.

 

Our 200m² urban garden here at Koanga Institute is over a year old now and we hope once further developed it will become a model to live by in urban areas around the world. It is our goal that a family of four will be able to satisfy their nutritional requirements (Weston Price principles) and even make a small income from 200m² using regenerative permaculture design.

So far in the garden we have 40m2 biointensive gardens, 34 fruit & nut trees, vines and bushes in a forest garden setting, top-bar beehive, rabbits above a worm farm, chickens within a chicken scratch yard where aerobic compost is made, soldier fly farm, biochar burner, temporary wicking beds and a passive solar cloche. Last month in December we harvested over $700 worth of produce from the garden.

But it's not complete! We have plans to add more permanent wicking beds, vertical wicking beds, a council approved composting toilet, chlorine/fluoride water filter to prevent soil microbes from being killed, a passive solar drier, and structures to utilise every nook and cranny for growing. And we need to support an intern to maintain and record results from the garden and publish our techniques for all to learn from.

We cannot fund it alone and need your help to reach our goal of $19,000. Through our crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo, there are great perks to be had for contributing such as e-booklets, heritage seeds, workshops and even your own garden design. You can contribute from just $5.

We hope you will support this crucial work by making a contribution here:

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.
