I am looking for permaculture designer that can help me out. Would be nice if they came from somewhat close to this area. We recently got 10 acres of woods in the Ozark/Boston Mountains just east of Fayetteville Ar. I would like to do a permaculture garden off of the house area. approx 75' x 50'. There are some large trees in this space. Oaks, Black gums, wild cherry, maple, and hickory. But lots of open sunny spaces as well. I have some ideas of what i would like to do to this area but these ideas are not set in stone and i would like to confer with a designer to see if there is something I am not thinking of. Also could use help in choosing perrenials that are native or would do well in this area. Thanks

I am not the permaculture designer you are asking for but we have been growing organically and wild harvesting in the Ozarks for forty years so I could list perennials that do well here...zone 6b/7a... if you would like. I know there are wonderful growers around Fayetteville judging from the farmers market on the square there...some of the most beautiful market produce i've seen. Some of those organic growers might know of a designer...or try the university....
I'll be happy to post what I know if you want.....I just don't want to do all that typing if you don't.
I know there are more folks into permaculture in the Ozarks up into Missouri and I thought around your area who post on this forum some.
good luck....

Judith,

I am a new resident of the Harrison area and would be very interested in your knowledge. I just inherited a home and some accompanying property and wish to create a self sustaining environment for myself and my children. This would involve picking plants that are complimentary with one another. I hope I haven't inconvenienced anyone by my "grave-digging" of an old topic! Thanks in advance,

Case

Hi, Case...welcome! I would be happy to help. I hink you will find this site a fountain of information. You might want to open a topic just for your homestead...where you could share your progress.

I have a clean slate for the most part and have some pretty ambitious goals overall for the road to self sufficiency. Anyway, more to the point, what are some local varieties you might recommend?

I will create the homestead thread later on tonight for sure.

I will watch for your thread and post a list of plants there. I think it would be confusing to add a list here.
