Building paths Building mulched mound garden beds

A HZ Pumen “mandala” food garden with central pond utilising natural land contour to help water filling

Companion planting rather than mono-culture planting reduces the risk of pest insect attacks

Building a large pond on site – shaping and water storing capacity enabled by a local pig

Terrace permaculture Terrace rice fields in Guangxi Province, China.

Terraces used on HZ PEC site – Terrace walls are also used as “ladders” for growing vine plants

There are no “weeds”, only mulch / compost that hasn’t been cut yet

Building a long food growing mound along a water flow channel – Base of wood for 5 - 10 year nutrients – Layer of mulch for first year nutrients – Layer of topsoil

Park-Urban community Gardens Original site Note the newly constructed swale now being used to catch rain water

Paths have been constructed so visitors don’t accidentally damage the plants

A natural building constructed on a training course in Thailand

Using rocks, clay and reused bottles to make a bench seat

Using bamboo and other plant materials to make fences and vine climbing frames Your “trash can” – The rubbish resulting from 3 shopping bags of shopping can be fitted inside…

Example Building a thermal radiating bench seat – a well designed system, with an efficient combustion chamber and storage mass, can store heat for up to 36 hours and warms not only the seat but also the room – Smoke is vented outside

Teepee used as an outdoor kitchen This is a 5.5m structure made with fire hardened bamboo struts and stitched canvas A significantly larger structure is being planned

Other things we do Locally picked berries Dried fruits and nuts and pickled veges

Sun drying of fruits, veges and even meats can give these foodstuffs a long shelf life

An example of a sustainable Aquaponics System charlie vinz from chicago

The plan for an on site aquaponics system featuring natural rain water collection, water recycling, and fish growing in the base area The pump will be powered by a solar panel
