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.

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.

It was sweet while it lasted. Three years back we told our next door neighbors we were installing raised beds in our front yard.
