Wildlife Sector Map

A new sector has appeared to me for base map design.
It is "Wildlife Habitat & Corridors"

Animal (Deer) effects on the SW orchard could have been predicted had I been
more astute.
The ravine across the highway funnels the deer directly across to the
orchard. From there they speedily go between the house and barn. Trashing
the tall plants and crushing the small one as they go.

We will have to put up a tall diversion or cut a through-way for them.
The house, garage and barn are a barricade to the back wetland and the
orchard area probably was the long term access.

Lindsey called for copies of the sector map overlay last week.

The Sector Map as designed by PRI is available as a jpeg or gif (with clear
background) but then not resizable.
Best use is as an EPS file in a design program such as Corel Draw,
Illustrator or "vector" style program.
Within those programs it is infinitely resizable, editable and transparent.
Printing on acetate makes it usable on overhead projectors or hard copy maps
as an overlay.

In other news...
We are moving in to SW next weekend! Starting Friday and finishing Saturday,
I hope. Yipeee!

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.
