June Meeting

Practice Design Principles - Systems & Elements Connections...Brainstorming Session?

We get to host our next group meeting at Siemen Family Farms (aka Mont Lamm Events/Belgians) off 395 just North of Deer Park. We'll be taking a look at practicing design by working with systems and elements.  What does that mean? I have a lot of elements, a few systems, and A LOT of yields to be achieved and I need help thinking about them.  I figure my brain is one element among all of ours and I could really use the fresh eyes on the ground to help me think about the space use and yields for NOW and the FUTURE.

Wind 2...

a second look at my wind issues.

I decided I needed to add to my original "wind" article now that I have some personal observations about how it actually moves here.

The first in a small series of articles dealing with specific challenges or benefits that we are addressing on our larger farm. I will eventually cover Wind, Sun, Water, Traffic, and Rolling Out from Zone 1 when everything is already put down for you (Retrofit).

This first article is about Wind - both a challenge and an asset. Wind is also an issue that we have not really had to deal with on the Urban lot but will be unavoidable on the bigger plot.

KREM2 aired our Event Center/Farm!

If you follow the link there's a brief article and they actually used the word "permaculture". ;-)

KREM2 came out and did an interview on what we were doing with moving our farm and opening Mont Lamm Events - 1.5 hours of interview crammed into 1.5 minutes. It's as good as it gets. ;-)

The Farm is moving to...a farm?!

Expanding our offerings and increasing our focus.

I thought I should post some of my thoughts on what we're going to do when we move from our Urban lot to our Farm up North. 

Here it is!
