Permaculture Basics: Zone and Sector Analysis

Permaculture is for everyone.

Permaculture is for everyone.

I had a comment on a older post about catching and storing energy. I can remember getting confused with all the information out there about Permaculture. I watched all these videos with landscapes that were already established. I didn’t really understand it all, so I just dabbled in everything. That was a mistake. Rocket mass heater to solar power to food forestry I wanted to do and know it all now. I got confused and disheartened because I did’t have the time nor money to do all these things. Then I heard a great piece of advice. Take a small plot in your zone 1 design it. After that’s complete take another plot. Small and slow solutions are the best. Now I want to implement solutions that minimizes outside inputs. This cost less, but takes more time. Trees that I start on my property will be better adapted to my property. My design of my property has my children and their children in mind.

  1. I learned so much from this. This video gave us some needed guidance in our homefarm planning. We are on the right track in a few important areas already. Very exciting stuff. Really feels doable!! Thanks again.

    • Thank you for your comment. I want to help people with all of this. And how the saying goes. If you helped just one person you have succeeded. Just remember small and slow solutions are best.

      • On my post today someone commented about keeping permaculture practices in mind, specifically zones. Then I visited your page from my Reader and, BAM! There is your post! No coincidences. I immediately thought of you anyway 🙂 . I honestly don’t think one can say thanks enough, just hope you trust in my sincerity. Melissa Xx
