  • Beschreibung


    I am a biologist on a three year sabbatical to develop my 4 hectare farm with a holistic view.
    This is my lifelong project where I hope to grow old in great health and style. Until recently I was working full time and did not have the time to develop the farm. Now I can focus on the things I like. Permaculture, yoga, building, gardening, cooking, bread-making, painting and bird-watching seem to take up most of my time. i have always been interested in the idea of self sustainability, and I am taking the time, while I am still "young" to put it into practice.
    There are many nice projects coming along,
    I am sculpting the land to make the best of natural irrigation and prevent erosion. This is an ongoing project.
    I am building a henhouse, I expect we will have happy eggs by March 2020.
    I am starting a coffee pad. I expect to have coffee beans by 2024
    I am starting a bean garden. I expect to have beans in 2020
    Seeding, transplanting, weeding, pruning and harvesting, are ongoing. All in small scale for domestic use.

    Agricultural landscaping. I am applying the Berm & Basin idea in order to take advantage of gravity for irrigation as this technique also helps prevent erosion. The berms will be used to create a food and fine woods forest.
    Gardening: a kitchen garden is an ongoing project, ever changing as the seasons. This coming year, we would like to start again a bean section with your help.
    Help with the chickens: right now we are testing the new chicken coop, and the chicks are 1 month old, all 12 seem to be thriving but we are still learning how to care for them.
    Edible garden: Adding a bean garden and a coffee bean patch
    General maintenance: fence repair, weeding, fire wood cutting, carpentry, fixes and repairs.
    Building: we will build a storage/tool shack beginning February 2020. Carpenters, Masons, electricians, roofers, welcome.
