I don't know what zone that makes it but if someone could me it would be very useful.

It's time for me to start the adventure and make myself a little permaculture nest.
I'm now the happy owner of a lovely little piece of land, 3000m² (.75acre) near Carcassonne in the south of France. It's a slope with some terracing done, mostly a forest. My plan in the long run is to have a small cob house there and probably turn it into a food forest.
As for now though, I'm studying 300km away from it, giving me only 1-2 weeks in December, February and April to get it ready for me to live there over the summer. In order to reduce costs my priority is to get hugel beds started and have summer meals sorted. I cleared the terrace that has the most sun and piled up wood laying about under 32m² of tarp in October, it sure is handy to start with a forest
Here's my checklist for December:
-Measure and map out the space
-Identify trees and plants
-test soil and ph
-get more wood under tarp
It's what came to mind. I have a basic understanding of how to do these things are done but any pointers are welcome. Surely I also missed something, and I can't wait to see what it is.
I'm sure it will be a bit of challenge given how little time I'm given, but I think it can be done.
Here's a nifty link to information on the climate I have, I don't know what zone that makes it but if someone could me it would be very useful.
I'm eager to be there in a couple of weeks and get started, I'll make sure to get some photos then.
