By Daily Mail Reporter Updated: 15:35 GMT, 10 September 2011 Deep in the rainforests of the Indian state of Meghalaya, bridges are not built, they’re grown. Ancient vines and roots of trees stretch horizontally across rivers and streams, creating a solid latticework structure strong enough to be used as a bridge. Meghalaya villagers create 'living' bridges by training roots across a river Meghalaya villagers create 'living' bridges by training roots across a river
Coppiced Basswood/Linden Trees I think there are two types of people in the world: those who know a decent amount about coppicing, and those who don't even know how to pronounce the word. This post is for the latter group. Stand of Coppiced Sweet Chestnut Coppicing (pronounced: KAH-piss-ing) is an ancient practice of woodland management where trees are cut down while dormant and allowed to regrow from the stumps/roots for a number of years before cutting again. The new growth of trees/forest from these cut stumps is collectively called "coppice". Permaculture Projects: Coppicing Permaculture Projects: Coppicing

No dig gardens - how to do no dig gardening by gardening the no dig way! No dig gardens are the quickest, easiest way to get home grown vegetables on your dinner table. No dig gardening or a raised garden bed, consists of layering organic materials on top of the soil to create a nutrient rich environment for your plants, in this case, vegetables. No matter what your location, gardening the no dig way is an option for you. The garden literally composts the materials while feeding the plants. A raised garden bed means that it doesn't matter what sort of soil you currently have. Simply layer materials over the top of your surface and start growing!

OAEC Launches Permaculture Program Blog The Occidental Arts & Ecology Center is excited to announce the launch of a blog for our Permaculture & Ecological Design Program, which we hope will inspire people around the world to see Permaculture not as a gardening technique but as a way of thinking--an ideology that facilitates community-wide discussion, planning and collaboration to build more sustainable human settlements that emulate the diversity and resiliency of natural ecosystems. The opening posts of the blog detail Program Co-Directors Brock Dolman and Kendall Dunnigan's trip to Haiti to work with and learn from SOIL, a Permaculture-minded organization dedicated to turning human waste--currently a major problem in Haiti due to lack of infrastructure--into a resource.

Permaculture is a branch of ecological design, ecological engineering, and environmental design that develops sustainable architecture and self-maintained agricultural systems modeled from natural ecosystems.[1][2] The term permaculture (as a systematic method) was first coined by Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren in 1978. The word permaculture originally referred to "permanent agriculture" [3] but was expanded to stand also for "permanent culture," as it was seen that social aspects were integral to a truly sustainable system as inspired by Masanobu Fukuoka's natural farming philosophy. "Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless labor; and of looking at plants and animals in all their functions, rather than treating any area as a single product system." - Bill Mollison [4] History[edit]
