Exciting advanced soils course on the soil food web and how to improve soils the permaculture way will be held just across the river in N. KY. Great lineup of teachers as well as a fun and scenic host site. http://treeyopermaculture.com/permaculture-design-courses-pdc/soil-food-web-workshop-cincinnati-2014/

Greywater | A Permaculture Design Course Handbook

Greywater | A Permaculture Design Course Handbook.

 

It’s a hole in the ground with carbon and plants, with a 2% drop from the collection pipes to the earthwork, minimal maintenance. Not rocket science. Radical simple greywater systems. Our latest EDU release. lots more coming over the next few months.
 

Animal Systems | A Permaculture Design Course Handbook

Animal Systems | A Permaculture Design Course Handbook.

Having started on a 130 ha project in Alentejo, Portugal this week this is an appropriate release. Healing the planet with using the rhythmic pattern of animals in rotation, intensive grazing using animal impact, and layering the forest with fowl is a great way forward to altering the industrial model.

Fermentation | A Permaculture Design Course Handbook

via Fermentation | A Permaculture Design Course Handbook

.Besides being a direct contact with nature and making your zone 0 more multifunctional, ferments have true value in permaculture systems.  And no I am not talking about the yucky sauerkraut from the supermarket that we all despise nor the yogurt that is tasty because its pasteurization has been hidden by copious amounts of sugar.  Rather I am referring to one of the arts that is poised to further the local foods revolution.  To back this up with more than just knowing your daily eating habits will be zinged with flavor, the following are the five main reasons why we ferment:

low carbon preservation (no use of refrigeration or high heat)

predigestion

unlocks minerals and vitamins

reduces toxicity

probiotic

 

Attitudinal Principles | A Permaculture Design Course Handbook

Attitudinal Principles | A Permaculture Design Course Handbook.

And for the philosophers in the crowd, this EDU release is the last principle in the sequence: the attitudinal ones like cooperation not competition and everything gardens.

Small-Scale Intensive | A Permaculture Design Course Handbook

Small-Scale Intensive | A Permaculture Design Course Handbook.

Another release from EDU page. This very important principle allows us to stack in space and time to obtain multiple yields all the while building overall system health. Make food forests!!!!!  Details one of the first food forests i installed back in 2006 in New Zealand.  Some nice graphics to share around as well.  

The Numbers Behind the Half Hydrological Cycle | A Permaculture Design Course Handbook

The Numbers Behind the Half Hydrological Cycle | A Permaculture Design Course Handbook.

An indicting look at two scenarios of development/production and how these numbers cascade through society and the environment.

Catchment Calculations | A Permaculture Design Course Handbook

Catchment Calculations | A Permaculture Design Course Handbook.

Our latest EDU article continuing on the water chapter.  For all you math lovers like me, here is a chance to do some calculations that entail catchment possibilities.  Simple math reveals some startling numbers which is the topic of the next article for the following week. AND new header art from Anita Tirone.

Hydrological Cycle: Half and Full | A Permaculture Design Course Handbook

Hydrological Cycle: Half and Full | A Permaculture Design Course Handbook.

If you have ever wondered actually how climates change, check out this latest release from the EDU site. It’s quite simple and with everyone scratching their heads right now about what to believe on climate change, lets simplify the argument to something very observable in everyone’s environment- the hydrological cycle. None of us can go up into the atmosphere and measure carbon, but looking at our watersheds is more than doable.
