Andrew,

I heard in an interview you did that you helped with the development of Maynard's vineyard. Besides the terracing are there other Permaculture techniques in action? My family owns a vineyard in Oregon. I know that the climate zone is much different, but I was hoping to learn any useful techniques that are being applied successfully. Is he incorporating any Biodynamic techniques?

Brent,
I wouldn't say that Maynard is specifically into Permaculture. He wanted an orchard on a slope so I created a design incorporating many Permaculture strategies. For his vineyard, we did extensive terracing on a steep slope, but it was still basically a monoculture. He likes to do things intelligently, and appreciated many of the common sense aspects of Permaculture, but I wouldn't call him into Permaculture. He's really into wine, firearms, barbecuing, and beautiful women, that's for sure.

Here's an album of some of my work there, and a picture he took with us:

I'm a shlub.
I feel very different, always have.
I have noticed the people I idolize share some of my sensibilities.

I haven't figured out if I'm a follower or just a bird of a certain feather.

It's like first we are fascinated with other people and the way they act.
Then we are fascinated with orgasm and excess.
Then we are fascinated by knowledge.
Then we focus on the earth.
The way nature actually works and how we can manipulate it to form our total sensory nirvana.

How many others have had anything this planet has to offer and chose to grow shit.

For me a simulated solitary confinement is most likely a motivator.

did these men also feel alone?
Or are we just OCD folk, genetically made up to line shit up by color and pattern.

 
Gravity is a harsh mistress. But this tiny ad is pretty easy to deal with:
