Black Locust, permaculture food forest tree Alexandra King of Inspiration Farm (http in Bellinghmam, Washington talks a little about how black locust is great fodder, although sheep might like it so much it can make them sick. The sheep thought the black locust was the best tasting things in a brand new paddock. Robinia pseudoacacia. Brian Kerkvliet, also of Inspiration Farm, talks about other valuable aspects of black locust: fiber, fence posts, tool handles, nitrogen fixer, coppicing, shoots, pole construction, skids for an animal shelter, bee fodder (some of the very best honey) - a long blooming period, leafs out late, allowing the soil to warm before the tree shade kicks in, chicken food ... Brian then shows off some tool handles he made with black locust. He talks about how easy it is to peel. He also shows using the bark for a basket. he talks about using it for a scythe snath. He compares black locust to hickory. He shows off some hay rakes. When used as a handle, it is springier than other woods. If the wood is left out in the weather, it won't rot. Brian recommends black locust for rakes, shovels, hoes and many other tools. Black locust has a large root mass which makes it so it can grow very rapidly. Black locust lasts a really long time even when in direct contact with the soil. Brian shows a black locust seedling that was devoured by sheep and ... recovering.

profit: organic farming vs. permaculture farming http Helen Atthowe considers economic benefits (profit!) in organic farming systems vs. permaculture farming systems (aka: conservation farming; agricultural ecology conservation farming). Benefits include: less labor, less land, zero spraying for insects, less fertilizer, less weeding, While organic farming focused more on managing crops, soil fertility, reduction of pests, and reduction of chemicals. A permaculture farm is more about managing natural inter-relationships with plants, insects and wildlife. Relevant threads at permies: music by Jimmy Pardo

Permaculture From Parking Lot Into Permaculture (pt. 1) You "Do" Less and Less, While More and More Grows It's hard to believe this magical permaculture food forest used to be an asphalt parking lot 3 years ago. Fruits, vegetables, berries, medicinal and cooking herbs all flourish here in abundance. Welcome to The Permaculture Neighborhood Center in Sebastapol, CA, where a group called the Permaculture Artisans transformed this space. Founder and owner Erik Ohlsen proudly describes the vision: "A neighborhood center that can not only support the food and medicine needs of the community, but be a gathering place to learn about how we can take urban lots - asphalted, cemented, pesticide ridden lots - and turn them into edible oases." The group incorporated soil fertility systems, roof water catchment and other innovative permaculture techniques. They created "water abundance by design", by creating a pond to circulate water and to attract beneficial insects and other creatures to the environment. They have grafted living trees together to create "fences". Take the tour in this video and pick up a wealth of information on permaculture techniques for how to resurrect abundant plant life from a dead parking lot space. With this design approach, nature takes it's course and each year you "do" less and less, while more and more grows. This video shows us it's possible! --Bibi Farber For more information, visit This video might contain copyrighted material. The use of which has not always been specifically ...

Native Plants, Toby Hemenway, Gardens and Permaculture Toby Hemenway shares his perspective on native plants. He is a powerful advocate of native plants. And, at the same time, is concerned that the passions of some other native plant advocates might lead down a path that is not as good for native plants. Specifically, the planting of exclusively native plants vs. planting of an edible garden. Toby also explores the idea of "native to when?" with a focus on douglas fir trees.

Occupy Permaculture Bill Mollison explains the need to stop running away, to face the fact that we need to take control of the financial system. www.occupy- permaculture.tv "Hunger is rising, absolute hunger is rising, food's badly distributed, not distributed at all often. The waste of food, the whole deal of it....its eh, a shocking situation, it's just inhuman. It's what nobody would intend, and somehow what we've arrived at, and we arrived at it by the erection of financial structures, totally divorced from resources. So that the fiscal economy has been a runaway system. We've gotta tackle that head on. That is, what I'm trying to tell you, it's no good any longer just being an organic gardener or farmer, we have to be effective financial and political units. And we're gonna have to face that. Just as it was very hard for us to learn to garden, then hard for us to learn to collect seeds, once the multinationals took over the open-pollinated seed market; we had to become seed growers. Now its very difficult, we have to become bankers.There's no good trying to pretend we don't have to. We can run away to the bush, build a mud hut and grow ducks in the garden, it's not gonna do it. The coals will still be burnt, the land will still be eroded, and the forests will still be cleared for newsprint if we run away to the bush. So, there's no escape, we've just gotta stop running away, stay where we are and start to face up and fight." 1983 pdc bill mollison
