In my opinion, a large part of permaculture is having a stash of resources to draw on for building projects. The resources are usually acquired for free, or at very low cost. They can consist of wood, steel, glass, brick, concrete or organic matter. As long as you can store your resources out of the weather, you’re entitled to as many as you can collect.
In the process of shifting, I discovered how many resources I had stored under the house and under roofing iron in the yard. First off, there was a lot of lumber with nails removed, as well as roofing iron.
I moved my best pieces of driftwood for making cool stuff.
In the former horse stables, I am building a lumber rack.
We ended up moving 2 cubic metres of compost.
This is Verti sorting her lumber.
Well done, girl.
