How to Establish a Small Space Intensive Food Garden Permaculture Research Institute

Case studies like this become an awesome portfolio for yourselves, and help people to see the practical potential in permaculture. It can be totally inspiring, and help get people moving on the ground! Case Study – Noela’s Garden, as installed by Geoff and Nadia Lawton This is a story about a garden that Nadia and I were asked to establish in 2006.

It’s a very small space – the area is 95m2. The area on the North side of Noela’s house. Noela, a friend of a friend at the time, is now a very close friend of the institute, due to the community friendship that this garden has created. Nadia and Geoff establishing the initial fence posts and digging the trench between the posts. Below we’re digging the small trench around the garden between the fence posts: A low height of wire being sunk down into the trench so that it can be buried. Views from the house into the garden. Vertical farming: Does it really stack up? THE SCOPE OF ECONOMICS IN HORTICULTURE. Abstract: The speakers who follow will give more attention to the popular aspects of our field of study - those that bring most people together, i.e. production economics and marketing economics.


It is only in these two aspects that we can proceed to advance knowledge and pass it on to others along recognized lines. We have been criticized for losing sight of economics in some of our published work in these aspects, but there are many other aspects in which the economic attitude is not yet apparent, or at least has not been developed by economists to the point at which they can, say, exchange views internationally because there are agreed terms and procedures they can use. For example, the social economics of horticulture does not have a framework, and the policy field is not well-defined. San Diego Architectural Foundation.
