Bean teepee progress, so far so good! The melons, tromboncino, and scarlet and sunset runner beans are starting to climb. I’m excited about the sunset runner beans from @bakercreekseeds , a beautiful soft pink flower. The buckwheat (the white flower) is doing pretty good as a weed barrier as I had hoped. The sunflowers are starting to get some height and the petunias and snapdragons are adding some color to the entrance. I can’t wait to see this covered! . . . . . . . . . . . #beanteepee #progresspic #gardeningwithkids #urbanhomestead #permaculture #veggiegarden #playscape #strawbalegarden #californiagarden #epicgardening #thehappygardeninglife #trellis #amazinggardener #growfoodnotlawns #urbanfarm #kidspace #santacruzca #homesteading #trellis #backyardgarden #permaculturedesign #homesteading #growyourownfood #organicgarden #organicfoods #organicgardening #wildandfreechildren #foodnotlawns #homegrownveggies #childhoodunplugged

Container garden scene: The Santa Catalina tepary beans are climbing and spiraling in all directions. These beans grow wild in Tucson’s most northern mountain called Santa Catalina’s. I have a deep connection to this mountain for its beauty and diversity. It is a host to the peak of Mount Lemmon that is called a sky island. A sky island is an isolated mountain where the low lands or valley has a dramatic altitude difference. Tucson sits at around 2,000 ft elevation and the highest point on Mount Lemmon is above 9,000 ft. One starts in the desert with saguaros and desert vegetation and the top is a lush forest with pines and aspen trees. It is truly a gem!! — - #tucsongarden #tucsongardening #azgarden #azgardening #permaculture #permaculturedesign #permaculturelife #containergardening #teparybeans #gardenscene #gardenphotography #gardenphoto #foodforest #growyourownfood #eatyourbackyard #grownativeplants

There's something about bunting that puts a smile on your face....especially if it's made from recycled hessian sacks. . . . .

Alley bed prep for a large garlic planting. We use a broad fork to decompact the soil and then add bone meal and compost before mulching. Once prepped we will plant about 2000 garlic bulbs which, if all goes well, should give us a pretty decent garlic harvest in about 9 months . . . . . #permaculture #permaculturesouthafrica #permaculturedesign #sustainableliving #permaculturelife #permacultureliving #offgrid #offgridliving #tikologo #organicgarden #permaculturegarden #growfood #kitchengarden #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #veggiegarden #vegetablegarden #backyardgarden #ediblegarden #herbgarden #medicinalherbs #plantmedicine #naturesmedicine #medicinalplants #herbalhealing #naturalhealing #herbalist #herbs #foodforest

Another frosty one this morning, but we’ve still got plenty growing in our gardens and poly tunnels. There’s lots of Permaculture design in this photo, vegetable gardens on sunny slopes near the house, elevated water tanks, poly tunnel, fences made from resources at hand, fire retardant deciduous trees in the house and shed zone and our unpowered shading meat house. . . . #millpostmerino #millpost #permaculture #permaculturedesign #permaculturefarm #regenerativeagriculture #polytunnel

Some final words from our intro to permaculture course particpants on what they learned and how they felt at the end of the course. Permaculture is about more than growing food. It's about growing soil, growing connections, growing knowledge, growing community. And what an awesome community we had grown over our 4 days - kia ora tatou! #permaculturedesign #permaculture #permaculturecourse #growingcommunity #empowered

Daniel broad forking over a raised bed in the market garden that we are leaving fallow this season. We've chopping and dropping the vegetation that comes up in the bed and also mulching it thickly with vegetation from the garden. Thanks again to Gligans Broadforks for donating this excellent hand made tool to us. #permaculture #permaculturegarden #permaculturedesign #foodforest #forestgarden #ecology Www.thepolycultureproject.com

Sam and Clemens, two of our farm volunteers, with a fresh harvest of turnip, radish, kale, various capsicums, bok choy, mizuna, beans, and cabbage. Our health and well being is intrinsically tied to the health of the land, through our nutritional intake, our stress levels, our ability to sleep and exercise appropriately due to our healthy interaction with our environment, and even our social health. The health of the land helps to support communities and build relationships as we engage in a unified cause and work together to achieve our goals. Since the Middle Ages, we’ve increased the potential diversity of our garden food crops by 800%. This has allowed for an enormous increase in available minerals and living enzymes producible by any garden in any climate. We’re able to produce an incredible variety of foods for local communities that are prepared to adopt permaculture gardening as their main food supply. This has turned our gardens into nutraceutical events that have a profound effect on our good health. Working with permaculture design practices encourages, by default, good exercise and sleep practices, and lower stress levels as a result. Permaculture practices encourage thoughtfulness and healthy mental stimuli, and stronger communities. #ZaytunaPDC #permaculture #permaculturedesigncourse #permaculturedesign #permaculturedesigncertificate #harvest #zerofoodmiles #permanentagriculture #permanentculture #buildsoil #growyourownfood #poisonfree #zaytunafarm #permacultureresearchinstitute #permaculturewillfeedtheworld #peaceandfreedomonearth

Part of our joy in this property was that there were several fruit trees already planted and at fruiting age. It was a step ahead in what i wanted for our #homestead . Unfortunately, that also means dealing with any potential problems resulting from poor care or site design. This #cherrytree had poor production, and the wounds were obvious. Then #gummosis became evident, which is the amber colored sap bleeding from the tree. At first I thought we could save it by pruning the #treedisease out, but all areas are now displaying symptoms, from small branches to all sides of the trunk and even the suckers. This means we will need to remove the tree. On a larger scale, it has made me question the location and quality of the #orchard . This is not the only affected tree. The young apricot seems to be growing poorly and the leaves look to have shothole. Several plums are showing #blackknotfungus . Also, notice the lichen growing on this tree. Slow growth and excess moisture imply poor soil drainage. So some investigation is going to follow in order to determine if that is the case. Then a solution will need to be tested before more trees are added. We don't have the fortune of lots of acreage to work with, so we need to do the best we can with the current space. #permaculture #permaculturedesign #foodforest #backyardorchard #soilmatters #soiltesting #soilproblem #growyourown #growyourownfood #fruittree #poortree

“The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it." - David Orr // 📸: @colin_arisman . Our adult 9-month program is filling up, but there is room for a handful of humans who are looking to tap into connection with their gifts to self, community, and nature. Inquire within and without.

Come fill your brain with wisdom from the forest garden wizard, Jerome Osentowski, about how to design, manage, and care for your own forest garden or one for your community! Using nature as our mentor we consciously scatter seeds, lay down organic material, watch in wonder as the beautiful diversity of plants grow and thrive to fill their natural niche, painted in like an abstract mosaic of species. These edible forest gardens build soil at an alarming rate, catch and retain water and sun, provide habitat and food for countless species (including us!), are resilient and beautiful, and are just fun places to be! This course is part of our two part Permaculture Academy, tuition includes camping and meals and new friends! Check out CRMPI.org for more information, or call us at 970-927-4158! . . . #forestgarden #permaculture #foodforest #ediblelandscaping #regenerativeagriculture #appropriatetechnology #constructedwetland #eatyourgarden #edibleplants #permaculturedesign #therewillbefood #growfoodnotlawns #growfood

After pegging out a line we clear the large shrubs from the area that will be the raised bed.  In this particular case this contour line will serve as a guideline that we will offset from to make equal distances between the beds. The beds will be planted with perennial polycultures of trees, shrubs and herbs and the area between the beds - the alleys - will be 3m wide and planted with various ancient grains such as Einkorn. #permaculture #permaculturegarden #permaculturedesign #foodforest #forestgarden #ecology Www.thepolycultureproject.com

Keyline design is a powerful framework to layout farms, villages, neighborhoods, and more. Based on P.A. Yeomans work in the 1950’s it guides us on the scale of permanence and stacks nicely within the permaculture design system toolkit.

B is for Bee. B is for Borage. - Bees love Borage. We have lots of it. - Borage has long been noted for its uplifting effects and was called "the plant that cheers" by the Romans. This effect is in part due to its stimulant action on the adrenal glands to produce the "fight or flight" hormone, adrenaline. The seed oil is produced commercially and is a rich source of gamma-linolenic acid which is often used to treat conditions that affect the skin including systemic sclerosis, psoriasis, and eczema. - The bright blue flowers can be used in salads (and cocktails) and the course hairy leaves have a cucumber-like flavour.

cool.. The path to our greenhouse, flanked by so many edible perennial plants: fig, peach, oregano, bee balm, horseradish, Himalayan honeysuckle - to name just a few! There’s just one peach on our tree (it was only planted last year) and we pray it ripens before we go on holiday so that we can taste it! #ediblegarden #allotmentgarden #permaculture #pollinatorgarden #allotment #ediblelandscaping #peachtree #greenhouse #kitchengarden #gardendesign #edibleforest #foodforest #permaculturedesign #growfood #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #summergarden Reposted by : growntocook

Very happy to have received the people's choice award for best landscape display at the Queensland Garden Expo! I'm really proud of the effort @liam.guthrie.75 (Liam Guthrie Stonework & Landscaping) and I put into our display. Months of planning and sourcing plants and materials paid off. The positive feedback we got from so many people at the show was fantastic! Thanks to everyone who enjoyed our display and voted for it as their favourite.

Winter is often a bleak time in the vegetable patch and it has been so cold to spend time gardening, however, I had to take a quick stroll just now and say "hi". I was thrilled to discover this little technicolor display of edible leaves and flowers that are happily doing there thing.
