A morning well spent #planting #seeds and #propagating others such as #lettuce #watercress #spinach #eggplant and more using homemade compost, vermicompost, soil and cowdung. Yes after last years #permaculturedesigncourse I want to reach at least 50% of growing my own food. Yes, I live in an apartment in Bangkok and it is possible. So far I have reached perhaps 10% of my own food due to some issues with seed and soil quality, however eating food grown on my own has made me appreciate it even more. Una manana bien disfrutada plantado semillas de lechuga, espinacas, i mas usando mi propio compost, tierra i caca de vacca. Si despues del curso de permacultura me he puesto un objetivo de crecer al menos 50% de mi propia comida. Aun no he llegada pero llegare a mi ritmo. Si vivo en un apartamento en Bangkok. #permaculturedesigncourse #holistic #holistichealing #mindfulness #compassion #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #urbanenvironment #community #compost #seeds #jardincomestible #huerta #huertourbanoenconstrucción #huertourbano #educationiskey #edibles #ediblegarden #growsimethinggreen

Piñas piñas piñas 🍍 One of the few edible fruit producing bromeliads. Pineapples are extremely easy to grow and to reproduce either from the crowns, slips, or suckers. They can be planted in poor soil and on steep hills on contour to help with erosion control. Once harvested they are an easy fruit to process. Rich in vitamins, enzymes, and antioxidents, as well as super tasty, these are an amazing tropical treat 😋 #piñas Interested in other tropical fruits and practices to master a productive permaculture farm? We have a variety of upcoming permaculture related courses including: Sustainable Homestead Design, Permaculture Due Diligence, Syntropic Farming, and our annual Permaculture Design Course.

Our friends @permacultureacademy are gearing up for their 21st #permaculturedesigncourse in Los Angeles beginning in October. Check out a 1-min trailer through the link in our bio! At The Permaculture Academy we aim to train the next generation of thought leaders that will steward systems that are regenerative and environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable. Permaculture ethics and principles can be used in every aspect of life, large or small, from community to agriculture, craftwork and art, finance and education, law and security, architecture and science, the list goes on. Our Design Course uses the garden as a metaphor for learning how to balance ecosystems, building business enterprise, and establishing community resilience within an urban landscape. As an internationally recognized school of Permaculture Design, we focus on practical, tangible, and actionable principles and tools that honor permaculture's pioneering history while also maintaining a clear focus on the future. We providing a diverse and innovative space for students to discover their deepest purpose and to learn the very real and very needed skills of: Self-reliance Modern Homesteading Scientific Sustainability Community Resiliency The Permaculture Design Course is our flagship program and is a rigorous 6-month immersive training of: ... Hands-on Learning ... Real Design Projects ... 1-on-1 Mentorship ... Action-Based Solutions We promote: ... Thoughtful Decision-Making ... Creative Problem-Solving ...

Ants! They are so important! They act as decomposers by feeding on organic waste, insects or other dead organisms. They turn soil naturally and help with decomposition. They also are a major food source for others. This specific little ant friend was exploring the alien surface of a local flower. 🐜 . . . . . #ants #antlife #junglelivin #permaculture #permacultura #puriscal #costarica #verdenergia #permaculturedesign #permaculturedesigncourse #agroecology #agroecologia #forest #jungle #nature #reforestation #ecovillage #thegreatoutdoors #optoutside #puravida // pc: @meliiibean //

To join an array of local and international students completing their Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course at the @greeningthedesertprojectii site—a model project of sustainable arid land development, demonstrating all the basic needs for a healthy, meaningful, and peaceful life—head over to the course booking page [links in comments]. p.s. All of my work on the GTD project is voluntary. These course prices offset the costs for locals and sponsored students plus contribute to the maintaining and continued development of the education project. Permaculture should be affordable, understandable, and achievable by all people. #greeningthedesert #permaculture #permacultureaidwork #permaculturedesign #permaculturedesigncourse #permaculturedesigncertificate #permaculturedemonstrationsite #jordanvalley #deadseavalley #drylands #organicgardening #growyourownfood #buildsoil #permacultureresearchinstitute

Toprak, toprak, toprak! Endüstriyel tarım uygulamaları 10 dönümlük bir arazide yıllık yaklaşık 500 ton toprak kaybına sebep oluyor. Toprak kaybı yüzünden yüzlerce ülke çölleşme tehlikesi ile karşı karşıya gelirken, dünya kaybolan bu toprağın ancak 1/40’ını yerine koyabiliyor. İnsanlar olarak toprağa bu görevinde yardımcı olmamız gerektiği aşikar. Permakültürde toprak kısıtlayıcı bir unsur olarak görülmez. Toprak ekolojisi yıllar içinde değiştirilebilir ve iyileştirilebilir. Nasıl yapıldığını öğrenmek isterseniz 29-30 Eylül’de Bill Mollison ’un “Permakültür: Bir Tasarımcı Kılavuzu” kitabındaki konuların yer aldığı , 72 saatlik Permakültür Tasarım sertifikası (PDC) kursunun özeti niteliğindeki @orman6_ ekibiyle gerçekleştireceğimiz Permakültüre Giriş kursumuza bekleriz. . 🏡 Mekan:  @kokopellisehirde , Reşitpaşa/Sarıyer ⏰ Tarih: 29-30 Eylül, 10.00-18.00 📌 Kayıt için: info veya DM. . 📸 @ediyil - 📍Köyceğiz - Mikrobiyoloji çobanlığı eğitimi sırasında yapılan kompost #tb . . . #ecology   #permaculture   #pdc #permaculturedesigncourse   #atalıktohum #atolye   #uygulamalıatölyeçalışmaları #sehirdeneleroluyor   #kokopellisehirde   #billmollison #kentbahceleri   #permakültür #permakulturuygulamaları #toprak #microbiology #soil #compost

VEGGIES ABUNDANCE 😋 🍅 🥒 We've captured two amazing people: Franz and Kasia, who've bought 4Ha of land in central Portugal as their new play ground. With fruit trees, veggies garden, yurtlife, outdoor kitchen, self build eco fridge...and the dream of offering permaculture design courses in the future. We feel we're in wonderland! We stayed the night and upon departure Franz gives us a box of veggies for a whole week! #findingabetterwaytolive #quintapedrasalvas #centralportugal #selfsufficient #veggies #playground #eco #sustainable #ecofridge #pureportugal #pdc #permaculture #permaculturedesign #permaculturegarden #permaculturedesigncourse #wonderland

Sometimes when I teach on Permaculture Design Courses I feel so energised at the end of the day. And sometimes, like today, I feel absolutely wrecked. It may have something to do with the hours of standing and talking that teaching involves, and all the prep and stress of being up there while people look at you. Each time I do this it gets easier. And each time I gain even more respect for the seasoned PDC teachers who have taken me under their wings, and who teach all the time like it's no big deal. You are my heroes. . Luckily I've figured out the antidote to the post teaching slump: many cups of tea and a good book. ☕️☕️☕️ It's working already 😁 . . . Thanks @milkwood_nick for the photo, you sneaky bunny, you.

Permaculture Principals: Obtain a Yield ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “The yield of a system is theoretically unlimited, or, limited only by the information and imagination of the designer” – Bill Mollison ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In other words, ‘Obtain a yield' applies to how we run our homes or design our settlements. A productive, self-sustaining garden from which you derive fresh food is a great way to ‘obtain a yield’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Self-reliance is one of the fundamental concepts of Permaculture Design, and growing an edible garden in your own backyard, terrace or balcony is a great way to begin satisfying your own needs from your own personal resources ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here are a few ideas to get you started, but there are no limits to how creative you can be with what you grow! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Instead of growing ornamental plants and flowers, try growing vegetables or fruits. Plant plants that will produce a yield of something you can eat or use in some way ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lettuce and other leafy vegetables grow fast, take up very little space and are really easy to harvest ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tomatoes grow happily in hanging baskets and other containers, as long as they get plenty of sunlight ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pumpkins, watermelons, zucchini, gourds, and many other veggies can be grown vertically up a wire mesh supported by posts ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Herbs like coriander and basil grow well with minimum maintenance ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Use your own homemade pesticide to protect your garden! Combine 10 to 12 crushed garlic cloves with 1 quart of water. Let this mixture rest for 24 hours. Strain the mixture and add 1 cup of vegetable oil (the oil you use in the kitchen is fine)—your pesticide is ready! To use, dilute ½ cup of the mixture with 1 gallon of water ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For more information on our upcoming PDC Retreat, co-working spaces and Yoga workshops, email meghna
