I just wanted to share some videos of before, during and after ~1 year of my suburban Permaculture project.
(Sorry for the clicking in the videos. The camera is a hand me down that I am recycling)
Before This is quick series of pictures turned into video of what the backyard looked like before the project started.
After ~ 1 year Part 1
I am hoping to set an example of what can be done, and how long it takes. Thus, anyone who becomes interested in the future will be able to give themselves some expectations and hopefully patience when starting their own Permaculture project. I would think the biggest thing I have learned from this project/experiment is how long it takes. My mindset is now realizing the difference between our culture of instant gratification world of easy credit, rapid response from text messaging, rapid feedback from forums and Facebook that nature and Permaculture does not work at that rate of speed.
Hi looks like you have lots of projects going. I am curious did you seal the wall the hugel bed is against? If not there goes the moisture, same goes for the concrete pots. Good luck

Hello Brad, welcome to Permies! Thanks for the observations. I had come to the same conclusion about the concrete pots. I never plan to waste my time with them again. The hugelkulture pile, another good observation. Although, I come to my conclusions about the rapid dessication of hugulkulture in the desert is from speaking with other people who've had it not work for them too.
