On Paper


Well, this is the first installment in many ways. To the right is the New South Swales Orchard installed here by the Permaculture Collaborative (Minnesota) in June 2006. Months of planning, years of experience and workshops for our members. Paula Westmoreland and I (mostly Paula) designed the plant guilds and Guy Trombley and I designed the Earthworks. Jeff Lawton came by for a week and some engagements locally before "approving" our plans.

Permaculture and Polyculture Consulting and Design
Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
