How’s it going eh?
So the “big picture” plan is to build an earthship out of the city, maybe in the mountains here in Alberta and raise chickens, pigs, goats and rabits. Currently, living “in the city,” on a corner lot with full southern exposure save a couple of big (BIG) trees.
After mowing this stupid lawn for 5 years, I’ve decided that our Earthship plan is moving a little slower than we both first figured and decided to get busy on the space I’ve been provided and do some proof of concept things that I can then implement on the next property.
- Rainwater Collection
- Overflow capture of rainwater into swales to irrigate garden / yard
- Hugelkultur beds
- Wicking water beds
- Sheet Mulching
- Urban Chickens
So after 5 years of looking at this blank slate of a corner yard, I’ve decided to move forward with a sense of urgency. This garden HAS TO HAPPEN and it’s that simple.
With the help of a friend as fascinated about permaculture as I am, and the odd buddy here and there on little projects, this yard is undergoing an overhaul.
I thought it would be nice to document the process and share it with everyone.
About this Website
I’m playing around with a couple of custom template ideas (more proof of concept), so you’ll see the changes occur live, as they happen. None of that “coming soon” or “in progress” bullshit. This site will always be “in progress”, as is my yard… er, forest.
