So here’s the permaculture design project for the food forest at our home in Port Neville (called Tir Ceòlmhor).
Eight years ago, when we were still living in Prince Rupert, I took my Permaculture Design Course (PDC), and created a design project for our home there (called Creag Faoiltiarna Fitheach). Not too much later, we moved to Port Neville Inlet, and so the Prince Rupert project was never completed. I had intended to make up a new design for our home in the Inlet, but life got in the way, as they say, and it’s only this year that I finally got around to that task.
Our home in Prince Rupert was called “Creag Faoiltiarna Fitheach“, which is Gaelic for “crag of the the wolf and raven” (both of which are common in Prince Rupert). Here, at our home, Ken and I decided to begin our process of “transition” away from a dependency on non-renewable energy sources and environmentally destructive resource extraction towards a more self-sufficient, sustainable existence living in harmony with our environment. As a first step on the path from concept to reality, I recently completed my Permaculture Design Certificate. I chose Creag Faoiltiarna Fitheach as my design project.
