Wind...

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. ;-)

How to Grow a Medicinal Food Forest

An On-Line Course presented by Michael (Skeeter) Pilarski

Course Overview

Anyone with a patch of land can grow a food forest! A food forest, or forest garden, is a gardening technique that mimics a forest ecosystem but substitutes in edible trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals. A medicinal food forest has the additional benefit of producing medicinal botanicals. Fruit and nut trees comprise the upper canopy of the forest while below are berry shrubs, edible perennials, herbs, root crops and annuals. Companion plants are included to attract beneficial insects, build the soil, and provide mulch. Together they create a sustainable forest garden ecosystem able to produce high yields of food with less maintenance.

In this course Michael Pilarski, permaculture and wildcrafting expert, teaches you how to turn your back yard into a food forest. Filmed on site in Michael’s back yard, this is not a classroom-based course. Michael teaches the basics of food forest planting while planting his own medicinal food forest on 1/8 of an acre. Does an 1/8 of an acre sound big to you? Don’t worry! In this course Michael talks about how to scale what you’re learning to your own back yard or land.

Here it is!
