SOLUTIONS

Diatomaceous earth: Lettuce Solutions

NCAP: Take the Pesticide-free Pledge!

***Cover the ground, don’t leave the ground bare (use cover crops or mulch or both), get the soil life active with compost and compost tea, introduce intensive diversity of plants, animals and human care, Don’t compact the soil, capture water…slow it down…soak it in, break the conditioning that weeds are bad, out compete the weeds, compost your weeds, introduce massive amounts of worms and other benificial critters, use rotational grazing, introduce fungal dominated compost tea in and around trees, put the credit card down and pick up a shovel and a pitchfork…! How’s that for a solution? :-)

SOFTWARE

The most important things are an understanding of the design essentials mentioned in the PDC course and avoiding “type one” errors. With that said…

… all you need are some markers and paper to communicate your ideas the below software might help you speed up the process and make your designs shine. I am linking to some expensive software so that you will know your options. Some expensive programs will supply trial periods which will give you enough time to try it out or maybe even finish a design. Most of these programs have difficult learning curves. I also list free and open source applications that are just as good as the paid versions. Most programs marked “Paid” offer trial periods.

PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO PRODUCTION

*For those who want to produce high quality video for their Permaculture Presentations.

Education

*Search You Tube or other video sites with the name of the software you want to study plus the term ‘tutorial’ or the word ‘basics.’ Warning: some people can get pretty vulgar on their You Tube videos and aren’t always thorough with their information. If you want to avoid this pay-as-you-go, the $25 per month and learn from the Lynda.com professionals.

Wiki

 

Note: Below is a selection of comments that I have enjoyed from the Veterans and Students of the 2013-2014 PDC. They have given permission for their comments to be published.

ClimateChange

The below comment was a response to a new students question about climate change:

Well.. climate change does seem ‘debatable’ as people are debating about it. Some are saying its just a natural cycle, what not. For me though, whether it is anthropogenic or not is not the point. I am not saying it is debatable or not. I am convinced that by establishing the right systems, it automatically seems to address the problem as far as it is addressable.

By setting up local food systems, food miles are cut down. By making food available fresh, processing pollution is cut down. By applying the right design, pesticides, fungicides, and other pollutants can be removed. By setting up perennial tree systems, atmospheric carbon can be cut down. By approaching finance and business with permaculture ethics and principles (Going to give a talk about it on 13th!! yay!) many systems can be adjusted to be more environmentally friendly while being beneficial to the community/communities concerned. By getting the water and soil systems right, local abundance can be boosted. By using appropriate technology like rocket stoves, fuel costs etc., can be cut down. By covering the rooftops of buildings in cities, the heat island effect can be mitigated. And many more!!

So, being baffled by the sheer potential of permaculture thinking in setting things right, I simply ignored the ‘debate’. Not that every one should do it that way though. I totally appreciate all the intelligent folks taking the topic up and trying to see the reality of it and to find out the potential and actual problems that are occurring. That surely is needed. I am, since the last 4 years, like a kid in a candy store. Just cannot stop learning more about PC, appropriate technology, and to pounce on every opportunity to design stuff in a better way.
Cheers!

PoisonHemlockandGoats

The quotes below are from a classmate that had poison Hemlock on his land that he removed by using goats. Very Interesting course of events.

“Hello friends. I have a situation. How do we use Permaculture to get rid of or minimize poisonous invasive plants? I purchased my 10 acre land Dec 2012 and fell in love with this short green plant even though it was winter. The soil underneath it was always rich and moist. It stacks organic matter like crazy. Well about July last year I find out the plant I love was poison hemlock. I even took naps laying in the stuff. Problem is,it’s everywhere! How do I claim my land back to food forest and useful area,when this plant will kill goats cows pigs etc? How can I ever graze animals? I know we always say the problem is the solution in Permaculture and I do want to stay positive, I need ideas. Should I just chop and drop it for mulch? this would be extremely labor intensive and take 2 years to break the weeds cycle. I would like to avoid herbicides of course.”

*Many comments by other students

“Have currently just fenced in 2 goats in an area about 60 % hemlock. Will update with results.”

“After almost a week in an area approximately 1600 square feet, they have eaten very little of it, they have eaten some in spots but for the most part avoid it. These goats are new to the farm and never been around the plant, but seem to know better then to sit there and poison themselves…”

“Another update. The goats are doing well, they have actually ate quite a bit of the poison hemlock, they have grazed the tops, but dont really eat the stalks and prefer eating other plants.  Just the two in that large of an area it appears to be inadequate to control the plant. However I see no ill affects in the goats whatsoever, so for anyones curiousity, its still possible to graze animals. The soil is so moist and so well broken up under it, perfect structure.  I’m going to try to replace it with other tap rooted plants. Maybe dandelion.”

Latest update, the goats love poison hemlock now.  I fenced them in the front yard around the chickens to eat the grass(which didnt work because apparently goats dont like grass) and they proceded to consume all of the poison hemlock in the front yard before touching any grass.  It is safe to say that goats CAN eat anything lol.  The female goat appears pregnant, so i’ll see if there is any complications from hemlock without.  Otherwise, do not be afraid to control poison plants with goats, they can take it for sure!”
