The Giant Free Oxygen Pumps

Trees are like natural air conditioners, pollution absorbers, wind and dust buffers and great water pumps. They cool the earth by providing shade and recycling water. The seed clouds by letting shaking off dust and fungi. “By cooling the air and ground around them, the shade from trees helps cool the earth’s temperature overall. Trees also help moderate the earth’s rainfall, which also helps keep the temperature cooler. Forests help to make sure we get rain. Trees absorb a lot of water from the soil for nourishment. Later, when the sun shines on the trees, water is released from the leaves and absorbed back into the atmosphere – just like the water is absorbed from our bathing suits. When the sun’s energy removes water from the earth’s surface, the water collects into clouds, and when the clouds are heavy with water they release rain back to the earth.”
Trees serve many functions. They serve the forest, the wider region and the animals. Trees are Giagantic oxygen pumps that are fuelled by free solar energy. They serve much more than just themselves.

Mother Goose says:

The Solutions Are Simple!

Although the environmental problems are very complex, the solution is embarrassingly simple. We need to move from being consumers to being producers. Every effort we make to meet our needs ourselves, empowers us, builds skills and understanding and a chance to work with nature and choose to harness natural energies.

Here is a testimonial from one of our customers:
enrol_here_chicken“Thank you for a wonderful experience at Permaculture Visions.  I was pleasantly surprised to see the tremendous amount of information you provide and the level of detail you offer in your modules. At first I wondered how a hands-on subject such as Permaculture would work in an online format, but I quickly found that you provided so much information and guidance that I was able to successfully implement the concepts in my own living space and really make the most of my experience. Your feedback on my assignments was always helpful and your thought-provoking questions made me think things through where I needed to. All in all a great experience. Thanks again. Blyth McManus Maryland, US”

Starting out in Permaculture

Starting Out In Permaculture

native_raspberryWant to Get Started in Permaculture?

Some people like to start now building skills and knowledge in a healthy lifestyle. Permaculture is not about a return to peasantry labour. It is about designing a healthy lifestyle for yourself and your community. It encourages a search for connections between people and their food. Permaculture is only half about where and what we do. The social side of Permaculture is invisible but just as important.
When we build skills to enjoy interdependence we lighten our load on the environment and other people.

It's All About zones
Design using Zoning helps us place elements where they are needed according to level of observation and attention. In Permaculture we break the design up into Zones according to the amount of attention each area requires Zone 0 – Home = indoor production (sprouts/ferments) and processing of food, waste, water collection, repairs and education. Zone 1 – Area outdoors needing regular observation tending and harvesting eg. plants we can browse and use each day.- intensive garden beds with keyhole access. Zone 2. Less intensive managed areas but with animals needing daily attention eg. poultry, rabbits, worm farm, snail farm. Orchard trees. Zone 3 Occassionally visited areas with self-fed animals (stock) and seasonal wide ranging crops eg. corn, wheat, rice, pumpkin, bamboo Zone 4. Wild food gathering (eg. nuts, native fruits) Wood for Fuel, self seeding trees Zone 5. Natural area – a rarely visited area. linked with neighbouring wildlife corridors. Sometimes managed to reduce risk of catastrophes ie. fire/pollution/drought/hurricane.
