What a great deal of work you have done! Will the hedgerow really keep deer from entering? Thats a fantastic analysis you have done.
What I see in America, Canada and Australia, the english speaking countries that post most about permaculture, is that people get to get a bunch of acres with the ability to build a house there! This is not the case in Spain. I have been looking for years and for the most part, a couple of acres that are good for farming will not allow you to build, and if you can build, its so small and expensive that you won´t use large land grow cros.
This is a very traditional area of Europe where the house is in the village and often has a little garden for vegetables across the street, if you are lucky, but many houses don´t have one close by. I happen to have a terrain that is buildable in the village, so zone 1 is 1/3 mile away from zones 2 and beyond.
Zone 1: 1/10 of an acre¡to build a house of about 1300sq feet on, the rest will be path and garden. Walk 1/3 of a mile, find zone 2, 3, 4 and 5. Most locals have to travel much much farther to get to their vegetable gardens and pasture lands.
What do you think? The problem must be the solution, thanks!
