Creating an Eco-Village Using Permaculture Principles

April 9th 2012 11:48

These are the days when it has become much possible to hear and study a lot about permaculture and the designs developed using the same theory. Although people show an interest towards adopting the various principles associated with this line of thinking into their daily lives, they are quite uncertain about how to do it. This so-called starting trouble is present with any revolutionary way of thinking. It is viable to design communities organically with some of the design principles laid out in this niche. The plants and the animals even the buildings created must co-exist within the same ecosystem. This is the ultimate motive anyone who practices within this domain. Although it might appear to be somewhat convoluted in the beginning, all these is very much possible with certain predefined methods. Illustrating some of them in the rest of the sections is the core objective of the author. While going through them, it will incite enough interest within you, and perhaps you might even enroll in one of these design classes conducted all across the nation.

Finding the Right Site

It is important to have a permaculture-based site in order to start working with the permaculture design principles. We need to display the practicality of this science while involving least expenditure. While it is possible to turn any piece of land into a fertile environment, much time and efforts (not to mention the cash resources) will have to be expended. Sacred sites which are close to naturally occurring water resources are the best locations to kick start the paradigm. It is a common practice to build homes on sloppy lands so that rainwater can be harvested using suitable means. Special care is given to the construction of the building one of them being the ability to keep the occupants warm during the winters and cool during the summers in an all-natural manner. With ample research work, it is even viable to build your own power grid line. The quality of the water must always be maintained in the top-most condition because the same source might be used to water the plants and for potable drinking.

Visit the Nearest Organic Farms for Ideas

Anyone will require access to food to sustain themselves throughout the days. With the precise use of biological farming, one can likely to create an organic garden which can serve as your food source. Planting trees in and around the location will help to control soil erosion and thus increase the quality levels of the soil. The leaves which fall off from the trees serve as rich nutrition to the surrounding soil. A means of transportation will be necessary, and this is why you can spend some time developing solar powered vehicles. Bikes are the most versatile machines when it comes to traversing long distances. However, they are unsuitable for carrying across large loads. Try not to meddle with anything and everything related to the nature to preserve its sanctity. Extensive bike tours can help you to locate such surrounding in and around your place. You will also get a chance to visit exotic organic farms developed and maintained using permaculture principles.

Permaculture design course is designed nature oriented to help improve a specific aspect of higher education access of education, research and innovation. Permaculture planting is intense planting, the objective being to cover the earth and leave no part exposed to the elements!
