This April the next generation of community gardening begins. A new design that creates more growing space ad uses less energy and materials.

SouthWoods Permaculture Design continues to install nature based community gardens with integrated pest management, perennial habitat, and a companion orchard.

99 garden plots where all the gardeners need to bring is the seed (and a few garden tools).

Each section is surrounded by a seven foot vegetated trellis fence, numerous bird houses, beneficial insect habitat.

Here are some smaller residential designs too.

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.
