Siemen Family Farms, Inc.

Herb and Edibles Farm in the heart of Spokane

Really, just an excuse to post pics from last year!  But seriously it's always changing around here so hopefully no view so strikes you you'll be upset by it changing. February 1st marks the beginning of a whole new season of work, planting, expanding, learning, meeting new friends, and growing more food for ourselves and the Main Market Co Op where we primarily have offered herbs but have an open door to other surpluses.  Who knew?!

Polyculture Garden Bed Size - a Design Exercise

at Hagarville Food Forest

Update 8/4/2013:   I have moved forward with my design plan and thought I would add a picture of what the bed sizes look like fully populated :).

Original Post:

I am trying to develop a strategic project plan for my garden beds this year and would like some feedback and advice before I commit. While I know that making errors is all part of learning I also know that we can learn by other’s experience (and errors). In General we want feedback on how wide to design and construct our polyculture based annual garden beds with wide paths planted with living mulch plants for chop and drop.

Hagarville Permaculture Food Forest Project

Permaculture Food Forest Project - Year 1

Author: Mike
The Hagarville Food Forest Project is being conceptualized and built by Mike and Cara Hagar, who moved onto a 2.4 acre property in Mead in February of 2012.  The property was 1 acre of alfalfa and 1.4 acres of lawn.  It is our intention to augment our food supply as much as we can by using Permaculture Principles.  We are using Landscape Design software to plan and visualize and plan our multi year project.  After 1 year we have made better progress than we thought we would, due to the help of many in our community.
