Orlando Urban Permaculture - Washington St.

Project Type

Urban, Residential, Community, Demonstration, Educational

Project Summary

The conversion of an entirely unused portion of land into a food producing system utilizing greywater and rainwater catchment.

Project Description

This site has two main objectives 1) the use of unused and plentiful sources of water and 2) the use of an unused and expensive piece of urban land

This site has several good sources of water to utilize. The first being two gutters and the second being a somewhat accessible greywater pipe from the main shower. The challenge in designing for this space has been the tight quarters considering how much water will be available, particularly in the rainy season. To further add complication, there are two large-ish windows right where one would ideally put containers for water catchment.

Current design includes 1) a branched drain mulch basin from rain water directed towards aquaphilic fruit trees 2) a bed for gingers, turmeric and cardamom (which sits closer to the house in the shade) and lastly 3) a bed of dwarf bananas and/or Musa sp. to be watered by the shower effluent. This project, which will double as a workshop, is set to start the second weekend in November. Watch this space!

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.
