I have been in China for the last six months. Since I have been here I have been searching for a place to practice some permaculture. I am not experienced at this so I thought some early practice could help with preventing future disasters. So want me to use a peice of their land to see what permaculture is all about. The plot is maybe 75 feet wide and over 300 feet long. It is between a road and netting for a driving range I will attach pictures later. What I have questions about is what to plant and how and when. I would be most pleased with anyone could send some ideas my way. I have seen videos and read books about permaculture but some of the important things i either missed or didnt see were how to plant and what. The climate is a lot like Kansas the city is called Pinghu about a hour an a half west of Shanghai. More info later

thank you
Thomas

well you might not want to put in a lot of "permanent" crops as you would have to dig and ship them if you move..but if you plan to be there long enough some might be worth it.

I would try to find some wood to make a hugel bed and soil and compostables to add to the top..and then put in your crops..whatever you really love to eat.

I feel it is a waste of time to plant things you don't like.

also put in a few insect attractors, dynamic accumulators and nitrogen fixers to make sure that they plants are well supplied and maybe some compost plants like comfrey or rhubarb

plant things the locals really like to eat, and plant them all together.
