Episode 4-8 is out with Michael Wolfert of Symbiosis Regenerative Systems, a permaculture design firm located just outside of Austin, Texas (@symbiosis_tx ). . Since talking to @talkingtreefarm last season it seems there are more permaculture oriented folks in Texas than I initially thought, which is a great thing! My chat with Michael spanned from how he dipped his toes into a PDC and evolved into assisting landowners in central Texas create landscapes that worked with and for the ecosystems. It’s a great episode packed with enthusiasm! . I’ll have one more episode in December, a year in review episode, and then we will kick off January by crossing the pond for the first episode of the new year! . As always the episode can be downloaded via the link in my profile or on most podcatching services. Enjoy! . #permaculture #permaculturedesign #centraltexas #atx #gardenpodcast #womenwhopodcast #resilientlandscapes #gardendesign #landscapedesign #borage #permies #permaculturelife #gardenlife #texasgarden #edibleaustin #podcastsofinstagram
Congratulations to all PDC students. Hope to spread the seeds everywhere. Good luck in your future!! #pdc #permacultureschool #permaculturedesigncertification #permaculturelife #permaculturefarm
Meet 'Frankenstein'. My dad's long term project. Has been on the road for about a year but today was my first ride in it. Engine from one car, body from another, seats inside are from Corolla. Very comfy 😂. The perfect bush car... when it's not raining.😅 #mustloveafrica #bushride #farmlife 🚜 #roots #luapulaprovince #permaculturelife

Greensmart Pots are one of Sally (our newest staff member)'s favourite things here at Urban Revolution 💚(although she tells us it's very hard to choose😜). They are a self-watering, "wicking bed" design, allowing us to grow our precious plants closer together than usual and giving them constant and stable moisture levels. While it is possible to make a similar pot from scavenged materials, the Greensmart pots are such a clever design - overflow holes prevent the roots from becoming waterlogged, and these holes and the inflow spout are designed so as to prevent mosquitos from breeding in the water reservoir. Sally says these pots are perfect for her because she can put them close to the walls of her weatherboard house without worrying about excess water damage to the stumps. They are perfect for balconies too, where excess water might also be a problem. They can be installed on a custom-fitted metal stand for those of us who prefer not to bend down too low, AND, with a few kind words to the lovely Bruno (who makes all our gorgeous bespoke shop fittings) a wheel system can be attached to the base of the stand to make your Greensmart pot completely mobile. There are a few simple but important tricks to making these pots work brilliantly, so please come and chat to us in store for all the expert advice 🌱💚
Fresh strawberries for breakfast :) We have few strawberry plants growing as ground cover at Prakruti. I doubted if they grow in Bangalore weather but they are performing pretty well. They taste amazingly yummy even though they're small in size. Planning to plant more of these as ground cover. #ediblegarden #ediblelandscaping #strawberry #permaculturegarden #permaculturefarm #permaculturelife #permaculture #naturalfarm #naturalfarming #garden #growyourownfood #growwhatyoueat #groundcover

A huge part of building an Earthship is pounding tires full of dirt. These heavy tires make up the walls and function as thermal mass taking up the solar energy during hot and sunny days to release it on colder days. This is what we call passive solar heating and is the only heat source in our house. Other more conventional houses tend to focus much more on isolation, but the fact is that thermal mass is an equally important part of keeping a house nicely warm. The same concept applies for a freezer; it saves energy to keep a full freezer cold compared to a half-empty one. Our Earthship consists of approximately 1,500 tires, and James have done this hard work almost single handed – an accomplishment Michael Reynolds himself has called pure madness 😅 So James is very pleased to be almost finished with this part of the building process. He now looks forward to a small Christmas break and new challenges after Christmas 🎄 • • • #earthship #permaculture #keylinedesign #holisticmanagement #easyliving #marketgarden #smallfarm #nodebt #freeliving #minimalism #nothingisordinary #getoutside #woodsman #offgrid #offgridlife #offgridliving #offgridfarms #offgridhomestead #homesteadliving #permacultureliving #foodforest #foodforests #forestfood #forestgarden #permaculturegarden #permaculturedesign #permaculturefarm #permaculturelife
Guava Flowers in December: My Hawaiian yellow guava has been continuing to flower throughout the fall and now into the beginning of winter!! This is happening for several reasons. First, I am growing this tree in a container which allows me to find the perfect microclimate throughout the season. Next, the ingredients that I use in the container are consistently feeding the tree. Some of the most important ingredients I use are biochar, composted mulch, lava rock, rock dust and different sized wood chips mixed into the soil mix itself. Yes...I mix wood chips in with the soil mix. Another reason this tree is continually flowering is because I don’t use man made fertilizer. I feed the tree with bat guano, worm castings, compost and a variety brew of worm/compost tea that is brewed with fish and seaweed extract. The last critical tip I will give for growing fruit trees in containers is to only use 10-20% compost in the original mix. Adding compost as a regular fertilizer on top will make your tree happy!!! I hope everyone has an awesome day today :) — - #permaculture #gardentips #fruittreecare #guavatree #fruittree #containergrown #organicfertilizer #growfruittrees #permaculturevida #happytrees #earthcare #knowledgeisfree #knowledgeispower #permaculturelife #gardentips #blogpost #postblog #organicfruit #growmorefruit
This paper might be the most important piece of our farm. On it, In the very beginning, we deliberately set our goals. We used Goals Articulation, the process laid out for me when I studied permaculture design. It allowed us to get really big picture about what we wanted to accomplish. . Essentially, we placed ourselves in the future and imagined what we wanted our farm to be. We wrote about it in the present tense and in very broad strokes. The idea is to first get beyond planning specific design elements and discover the overarching bigger concepts behind what we are trying to create. Self-sufficiency is a big idea, a chicken coop in the NW corner is a specific one. . We've come back to this sheet of paper many times in our discussions and planning. We can hold a specific idea or design element up to this larger vision and see if it fits before we get carried away. This process has really helped us remember that we want to be self-sufficient first, that we value low-maintenance, permaculture solutions, and that we came here to have fun and do what we love. . What are some of your goals and big ideas on your farm or homestead? . . . . . #thesilverfoxfarm #greenfieldma #westernma #farmlife #iamcountryside #iamamodernfarmer #homesteading #homestead #grownyourownfood #farmgoals #permaculture #permaculturedesign #pdc #permaculturelife #homesteadgoals #farmher #goalsetting #gardengoals #permaculturefarm #sustainablefarming #selfsufficient #knowyourfood #knowyourfarmer #homesteadlife #gardenplanning
The bridal veiled stinkhorn 🍄 ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We have never eaten this mushroom here, but supposedly it is commonly sold throughout Asian markets and is rich in protein, carbohydrates, and fibers. It is said to also contain various bioactive compounds, and has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Has anyone ever eaten this mushroom?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Interested in medicinal plants?

Saya mendengar maka saya lupa, saya melihat maka saya ingat, saya melakukan maka saya paham. Dari ucapan orang & beberapa referensi tulisan, admintang tau bahwa di akar tanaman keluarga polong-polongan (leguminosae) ada simbiosis dgn bakteri pengikat Nitrogen di udara utk diubah jadi senyawa yg dpt larut di tanah dan diserap tanaman. Selanjutnya, dari pengamatan dan percobaan langsung menanam legum, muncul temuan dan pertanyaan yang -semoga sesuai dengan ungkapan di atas- akan membawa kita menuju tahap 'paham'.

We got inspired and made like-minded friends as we immersed ourselves in sustainability, ecology and ethical living throughout this year during our permaculture course hosted by Daniel Tohill in the beautiful Otamatea Eco Village of Kaiwaka. We all gained the knowledge and practical experience to create a sustainable lifestyle for ourselves and others. Participating in creating a better tomorrow, building communities, restoring our values, regaining our sovereignty are the keys to positive life transformation. . . . . . . #permaculturedesignforlife #bethechange #awareness #lifetransformation #beingsovereign #permaculture #permaculturelife #permacultureliving #permaculturecourse #sustainablefuture #sustainablelife #ethicalliving #ecovillage #community #newzealand #kaiwaka

We are almost finished with pounding the tires that make up the walls of our Earthship and are thereby ready to make the concrete beam on top of them. However, winter is upon us, and it has become too cold to continue this process due to the risk of the concrete cracking. Thus we are now wrapping in all the walls to protect the cardboard in the bottom of each tire from getting wed and dissolved during this wed season. Then we can continue the work in spring when the weather prognosis is once again frost free. Luckily, we do not run out of work soon, as we can still have progress in other areas of the building process. • • • #earthship #permaculture #keylinedesign #holisticmanagement #easyliving #marketgarden #smallfarm #nodebt #freeliving #minimalism #nothingisordinary #getoutside #woodsman #offgrid #offgridlife #offgridliving #offgridfarms #offgridhomestead #homesteadliving #permacultureliving #foodforest #foodforests #forestfood #forestgarden #permaculturegarden #permaculturedesign #permaculturefarm #permaculturelife

So on a scale of one to eleventy million, just how cute is the newest addition to our milking herd? #themsexydairycowsthough
Pasture raised chooks have the tastiest eggs. Our girls (& guys) are out free ranging daily scratching around in the dirt for bugs, eating grasses & herbaceous plants they find along with scraps & their feed. . Our eggs are sweet & vibrant in colour. They come in all shapes, sizes & colours. They are as nature intended! . I still suck at making dippy eggs, but the eggs are tasty enough that the kids forgive me 😄

With its glossy green aromatic leaves and fluffy white flower heads, Lemon Myrtle (backhousia citriodora) will always be the "Queen of the lemon herbs.” It is indigenous to Queensland, and can be used in the form of tea, powder or oil for a stronger immune system that is vital to combat diseases.☘️💚🍀💚🌿💚🍃💚 . . . #gardeningaustralia #permaculture #permaculturegarden #urbanpermaculture #permaculturelife #homegrownherbs #organicallygrown #organicgarden #organicgardening #ediblegarden #foodforest #brisbanegardens #lemonmyrtle #backhousiacitriodora #australiannativeplants #hugelkultur #blissful_aficionada #greenlifestyle #greenliving #livinggreen
A crisp, clear morning moving woodchip to mulch a bed. What better steaming hot beverage to warm up with than a home-made mulled wine? None. #festiveseason #mulledwine
This is why we do what we do. It’s so easy to go to a beach and pick up a huge bag of trash... that’s a problem! Do the Earth a favor and always bring a bag with you wherever you go, just in case you see littered trash (which is very likely). Do your part ♻️ #ZeroWasteLiving
We all like to bring a little bit of nature inside during Christmas. Maybe this helps us compensate for the lack of time spend outside during this cold and dark time of year. Or maybe it is simply beautiful. In this video, Maiken and Leonardo are collecting all the materials for a cute little Christmas wreath in our forest and backyard. • • • #earthship #permaculture #keylinedesign #holisticmanagement #easyliving #marketgarden #smallfarm #nodebt #freeliving #minimalism #nothingisordinary #getoutside #woodsman #offgrid #offgridlife #offgridliving #offgridfarms #offgridhomestead #homesteadliving #permacultureliving #foodforest #foodforests #forestfood #forestgarden #permaculturegarden #permaculturedesign #permaculturefarm #permaculturelife

Can you spot the treasure?! 👀 Usually the strawberries are snaffled long before I get a look in 🐛🐌 but today I spotted a few and took my chances!🍓 They might not look as fat as the ones in the shops but the taste is mighty!👌 Surely nothing tastes better than a homegrown strawberry...except perhaps a homegrown carrot? 🌱 Zero plastic, zero food miles, zero pesticides 👊
I remember picking rhubarb as a young kid in the UK. It has been a staple and delight ever since. Now growing it at the farm, and enjoying an occasional crumble. #pesticidefree #permaculturelife #naturallygrown #homegrownfood #sustainableliving #organicfarming #homegrown #growyourown #countryliving #farm #ediblegarden #northernrivers #countrylife #rhubarb
A great part of self-sufficiency is to keep the expenses at a minimum. This can be achieved by learning new skills. With three boys in our household, we found it important for Maiken to learn a gentleman’s cut. Besides a small investment in a professional set of scissors, it only took a few hours of YouTubing and James and Leonardo being willing to let her practice on them 😀 • • • #earthship #permaculture #keylinedesign #holisticmanagement #easyliving #marketgarden #smallfarm #nodebt #freeliving #minimalism #nothingisordinary #getoutside #woodsman #offgrid #offgridlife #offgridliving #offgridfarms #offgridhomestead #homesteadliving #permacultureliving #foodforest #foodforests #forestfood #forestgarden #permaculturegarden #permaculturedesign #permaculturefarm #permaculturelife
First cacao produced on our lot here in La Ecovilla!! It’s amazing how popular chocolate is all around the world yet how few people actually know where it comes from. The pulp around the seed is so delicious! I will put these seeds to ferment for 4 days and then I will wash them and dry them in the sun. Then I will lightly toast them and add them to my morning smoothies! Yum. #cacao #permaculture #permacultura #permaculturelife #chocolate #costarica
Smooth, shiny, Tadelakt 👌🙌✨🌟 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are putting the final touches on this beautiful shower. This lime plaster is a traditional Moroccan plaster known as Tadelakt. Once burnished with a hard stone and sealed with olive oil soap a natural water proof surface is created. This polished plaster is great for bathrooms and showers. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are looking forward to practicing and teaching more about Tadelakt and other polished plasters in our upcoming natural building course with @bonitonito. In the course there will also be an introduction on earth wall building techniques. To learn more about this awesome hands on natural building course check out our website, link in bio. #naturalplasters #tadelakt #naturalhomes #naturalbuilding #womenwhobuild #polishedplaster
