Well, I'd sure like to listen in to at least some of these interviews!

Love this thread because I love pictures! They give me so many ideas. BTW, to the Meyers family: you said more could be found on your blog, but when I went there, I was denied access. Seems one has to be invited to read it. Could I please get an invitation? Thanks!

Thanks, guys! I don't get to Victoria very often, but Merville is nearby. I'm in the phonebook. Give me a call and maybe we could get together for coffee (Merville Store?).

Hi! I live in Campbell River, BC, on Vancouver Island. I'm wondering if there are any "permaculturists" or permie groups on the Island. While I'm not currently using many of the techniques, I'm hoping to begin a small food forest in the future here in town. I sure could use support from someone else who'd like to discuss the ideas.

Thanks for the reply! I'm glad things are going well for you there! I'm 68 and I'm hoping to be able to sell and start a new permaculture garden on a big city lot (so I can walk for shopping) with a small house on it. I've picked out the lot (I hope it doesn't sell before I can get it), so I have all sorts of castles in the air going here! :

Good luck!

Hi!
I just joined here and after reading this, my first discussion, I have a comment. In my little garden, I mulched the 2' pathway with straw, which held up for at least 2 years. I'm wondering whether or not in your case, if you did this, then in subsequent years you could just add weeded out plants to the straw, etc. Then you could move the planting beds over so one of the adjacent growing beds would become the new pathway for a couple of years, and so on. This would allow for crop "rotation" to a degree, which should be good for the plants. You could still use your 6' covers - but you'd have one bed exposed to the weather for a while until it was again used as a growing bed (that's perhaps a downside, but maybe the frost would kill some undesirables(?).
