Good Neighbor Farms

Patrick and Andrea Johns plan for a permaculture life

Author: Annie M

We live on 1.5 acres in the Spokane Valley.  We have lived here 35 years.  For the most part we have kept the place free of toxic chemicals.  We have three 60 year old apple trees, two 60 year old sweet cherry trees, and a lovely, old plum tree.  The fruit on that tree is like honey, no bitterness under the skin.  There is also a 25 year old Black Walnut that produces a lot of nuts.  We just have to figure out how to liberate the nut meats from the outer hull.  Our rhubarb, raspberries and horseradish are well established.  All the other fruit bearing trees are 10 years old and younger.

The Green House

West central co-housing gardening/ animal keeping/education experiment

Author: Redurth
Summer of 2012 these 2 city lots were purchased with a vision.

6 housemates and a dog this Spring are planting the seeds along with youth around the area.

I, Adam Brown, pruned up a cherry in the front and planted some gifted Comfrey, from a member at the last meeting, underneath. I also pruned up some original? Lilacs and Honeysuckle that may have been planted in the mid 20th century. My friend Beth Mort helped me start up some compost. My friend Ed Bryant stopped by and gave me some pointers and my buddy Dan Dengler removed one of the 9 Silver maples in order to allow some more Sun on the empty lot where the future greenhouse may be and also to provide lumber for the future dining table.
