These Pics are from our farm visit on the last day of November 2012. Was a mix of sun and shade coming off a night of heavy rain. Exploring the farm and its biodiversity and with the farm manager Viktor was quite the pleasure. He is a bundle of knowledge and the farm has distinct “barrios” that gives it a unique feel. It has a surprisingly good start to becoming a food forest. Next is more nitrogen fixers, guilds, and the lower layers as well as increasing the intensive garden production. Looking forward to our course in 13 days!!!!!! http://treeyopermaculture.com/future-courses/taino-farm-intro/
Vasco Croft’s Winery in the far North not so far from from the ancient forest of Geres. A working winery now that seeks to have some Permaculture inserted. Soil biology work, food forests, natural building, and the like. It’s a long-term project.
This Gallery comes from a castle and village restoration project from a students family in the north of Italy near the Slovenian border. After 30 years of work, half the village has been restored as well as other cultural artifacts. Plus the castle is getting its finishing touches in the next year. The project will be turning more and more into Permaculture and Livia will be creating a traditional skills school to help keep traditions like building with stone or making tapestries alive.
here are some fall pics after the rain has started of terra mae, Almocageme, Sintra, Portugal. Great food forest that the plums are thriving on, the nectarines pumped out fruits on and the tamarillo’s were oh so delicious!!!!!! great earthworks and soil biology restoration work.
Taino Farms in conjunction with Extreme Hotel will be hosting us in the coming months on several occasions, here is some pics and the course posting will soon follow. Exciting opportunity to help bring the farm-to-table mission closer to fruition and have the pleasure of tropical permaculture.
