Geoff's site is closed to non-members. Is there any public information about this garden?

Thanks!

Geoff's gotta stop looking at these types of cold climate sites just in the summer. An Alberta winter gives one a completely different viewpoint. So does a Vermont winter - http://geofflawton.com/videos/cold-climate-permaculture/. These are fantastic vids but he can't really appreciate what he's looking at without a bit of winter perspective, ie, freezing body parts. LOL

This class teaches permaculture design basics and much more. It's well taught with lots of extended links and it's FREE!
I'm taking it now and I think it is available again in October and once more after that.

Intro to Permaculture Design

I think this link will work for someone not enrolled in the class.....If not I'll come back and fix.

I'm trying to explain permaculture and guilds to my 76 YO father-in-law. You know the type, plaid flannel old New England, with a we've always done that way, attitude. But his plum trees and apricot trees look almost dead, or maybe even dead. I found a small plan for a plum guild, but wondered if anyone had any specific recommendations for an apricot in northern zone 5 almost into zone 4. We're in NH with plenty of space so that is not the constraint. Thank you for any ideas. Oh and I love flannel that wasn't a dig, just a general idea.

It's made a huge difference to me to grasp permaculture as a system of design rather than a set of techniques.  I think it can be a mistake to start at techniques such as guilds, without first trying to apply design.  Before considering detailed plantings of guilds, I think it is important to understand where the fruit trees fit into the larger system, the created ecosystem of the homestead.  How do they interact with other elements such as the watershed, the house, the animals, etc?
