Permaculture Farm Design Ideas


  • Homestead is built on keyline surrounded by orchard  and intensive gardens.
  • Windrows and bunding is built on contour,
  • Barns on contour with input & output avenues,
  • camping grounds and bush tucker.
  • Flood tolerant plants along the river.
  • Animals are given some self determination being able to move to high during floods and into shade in the heat and into bogs and rivers during fire.
  • Windbreaks reduce erosion and shelter stock, swales and row plantings on contour.
  • Riparian zone with chinampas in slow flowing shallows.
  • Steep slopes and ridges are reforested to reduce erosion and rebuild native habitat.
