Course Wrap-Up

DSCF1766

It is that time.. the end of the semester and the completion of my long awaited bachelors degree. In sum much learning was gained throughout the senior project course. In specific I…

*Learned how to create and maintain an online blog.

*Gained knowledge via researching permaculture design which translated into a permaculture design map for property.

*Taught two workshops at the local community garden. One on planting garlic and another on cobbing the cold frame.

*Successfully completed a cob cold frame for local community garden which included a public workshop, as well as directly teaching students at the school.

*Maintained ongoing research throughout the semester including specific research of permaculture design in an arid climate.

*Implemented various project around homestead such as lime coating for cob cold frame, new compost system, sowing cover crops, sheet mulches, and home preservation.

At times I found the course challenging due to the time of year (fall/winter) and thus decreased opportunity to implement permaculture projects, and volunteer opportunities within my community. Ah well… I have a lot of great ideas to run with in the spring.

The course was extremely valuable in terms of gaining new knowledge for expanding my current gardening/homesteading practices, mapping of the property, and building relationships in my community – specifically with the local community garden.
