Permaculture designs Bogata Suma

Barbara Scheltus wrote some permaculture designs for our life and our land. She is being mentored on her Permaculture Diploma pathway by Looby Macnamara and Delvin Solkinson

Permaculture pathway design
My personal Action Learning Pathway design for a Permaculture Diploma, for becoming an experienced designer and a resourceful facilitator.

Permaculture design for Bogata Šuma
Overall design about our life and our land. It links to al other land-based designs:

Growing a village
Design about starting a sustainable, self sufficient village where young and old can live together in harmony with nature.
How can we set a positive, including culture in our community with a diversity of people. This design is a co-production of my family, about living with vision and values, and helpful routines.

Our ultimate home
Design for the ultimate passive family home that uses Nature's elements in a positive way and how to get our household in a flow.
A family co-production.

Design for self sufficiency
This design for resilience is made for 100% self reliance for our family. Not necessarily realistic; we are not (yet) willing to live without coffee, chocolate, bananas and our car.

Nut farm design
About how and why to setup our polyculture nut orchard.

Natural greywater cleaning swim pond design
About how and where we can make a natural pond that filters our greywater and gives us a nice spot to swim.

Forest garden and food savannah
An extensive design about our edible landscape and fruit park. Is still a bit behind the facts.

A garden for the chickens
Nice design, needs new ideas because chickens do much more damage than planned.

Mindmap of How to be the best version of meME
Personal permaculture design about how to be the best version of me.

Speak fluent Croatian design
A personal permaculture design about how to learn better Croatian. About learning styles and creative solutions.

My unfashionable minimalistic capsule wardrobe
A permaculture design about how to dress myself better with just a few good pieces

"When we started developing our terrain in 2009, we used permaculture principles to design our property. We had a year of observing the terrain and developing our vision:

A self sufficient, sustainable, beautiful and abundant life in harmony with nature"
