Jim Gale takes us on a tour of Todd and Jill Hinson's Permaculture Homestead at Serenity Gardens Eco Village in Costa Rica. Permaculture property lot design and installed by Brendon McKeon.
Our vision for this project is to create a full circle permaculture homestead on less than half of an acre, providing complete food security for one family. We are utilizing permaculture design principles and using small intensive systems to grow a large amount of food in a very small space. It is important, when following the design principals, to spend time envisioning the daily flow of life. By doing this, we attempt to minimize human energy outputs and let nature work with us. In permaculture design we work to define the different zones of any given landscape and plan these zones based on the amount of time a given system will require on a day to day basis. The home is our zone 0 and will be the center of our daily existence. There are generally 6 zones that we identify in a given landscape though this can vary based on the size of the land and the types of systems we will have. In this small scale homestead we are working with zones 0-3 on the home lot and zones 4 and 5 are part of the bigger community. The bigger goal of this project is to use this as a model for the rest of the community and replicate this model for each home site.
