Permaculture Stencil Template

During a rainy day I went looking for nitrogen fixing shrubs and ended up watching a Geoff Lawton video where he interviewed someone who showed their design process. During that video I noticed that the designer was using a stencil template. Something I used back at school when I was a kid.

Yes, there are processes and there are good processes. Necessarily both are not the same. There are also those that cry for adaption and alteration. And one of those processes is Obredim.

Continuous integration Part 2

Since I wrote about "Continuous Integration" some time has gone by. Good to have you here again. I have evaluated the design before implementation, ran a reiteration twice and then started implementing.

The used process for this design is Obr3dim, an Obredim variant. Use the jump menu to dive into the different steps.

The garden in images on May Day 2019

Yes, another glog post from Beyond Buckthorns! The spring has been wonderful, April was very warm even though pretty dry, and nature has been liking it. Here are a few snapshots of the garden on the 1st of May 2019. Let's just all ignore the fact that I am writing this on the 3rd and that there is currently snow on the ground again.

Building a Bokashi bucket

Bokashi is one of the the hot topics that I came across in 2017. I actually came across it looking for EM, Effective Microorganisms. In 2018 I looked for Bokashi buckets but could only find those from Japan that come with a price tag of about 60,- € in Germany, and 90,- € in Finland.

Before my PDC at Elontila it was already clear that I would start the process of getting a Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design (DAPD).

Meeting the Nordic Institute of Permaculture in Oslo

On Friday morning Lumia brought me to Hämeenlinna so that I could take the bus to Helsinki Vantaa Airport, in order to catch the plane to Oslo. Why Oslo? This years, 2019, Nordic Institute of Permaculture meeting was held in Oslo and the Finns requested their membership some weeks before.
