Permaculture expert

I mentioned a “food forest” we’re working in several posts. Here’s a bit of background and an image to explain what that is….

After reading a few permaculture books (Gaia’s Garden was the best of the bunch), we hired a local expert who lives in our town to come over and discuss specific ways to implement permaculture in our yard. One of his interns created a nifty set of drawings like this one of a food forest to provide guidance.

Not a bad investment of $250 for several hours of their time, ideas, and delivered sketches. We’re using an area in which I already had deer-proof fencing and irrigation piping.
