Permaculture as sustainable way of living Permaculture as sustainable way of living Presentation Transcript

  • Permaculture as sustainable way of living By Marko Ikonic
  • Beginnigns Bill MollisonDavid Holmgren
  • Ecosystems as role model Water Energy Nutrients Oxygen Heat
  • Multidisciplionary
  • Permaculture Principles
  • Permaculture design
  • Element analysis
  • Energy in permaculture • Energy efficiency • Renewables • Circulating and storaging • Usage of local resources and materials, recycling
  • Passive solar design
  • Geotermal heats pumps • 1 unit of electrical power = 4 units of heating power • 30-70 % more efficient from clasical heating systems • High capital cost – low operational costs
  • Jean Pain method
  • Water in permaculture, rainwater harvesting
  • Lakes with wetlands plants RUSH BAMBOO CANE SEDGE
  • Agriculture the orgin of permaculture • Organic farming • Biodynamic agriculture • Fukuoka method
  • Masanobu Fukuoka
  • Mulching • weeds control • keeps moisture and reduces evaporation • reducing erosion and losing of soil • keep soil from direct impact of Sun and wind • if is it organic, while its decompose it provide nutrient for the soil • can be decorative
  • Composting Transforming organic waste into quality organic fertilizer. Uses ability of various microorganism, fungs and earthworms to decompose organic matter. Pile between 2-3 m², 90 – 150 cm high, moisture 40 – 65 %, temperature 45 – 59 °C, ph 5,5 – 8, C-N ratio 30:1 .
  • C:N ratio for different organic matters Matter: C:N Ratio Fresh garden waste 20:1 Kitchen waste 15:1 Straw 50-150 : 1 Fresh grass 15:1 Cows manure 20:1 Cardboard 500 : 1 Leaves 20 – 100 : 1
  • “Live your life like tomorrow is your last day, but cultivate your land like you are going to live forever “ – Patrick Whitefield, British permaculture teacher.
  • Constructing in permaculture • Local resources and materials • Use advantages of passive solar design and landscape architecture • Plan mechanism for collecting rainwater and treatment od waste waters. • Usage of recycled materials • Fire prevention and safety
  • Rammed earth method •Traditional way of construction for thousands of years •1, 7 billion of people lives in homes from earth •Healthy, stable and pleasant for living •Many modern buildings are build from earth
  • Straw bale houses • Excellent thermal insulation •Saves money •U(k) coefficient 0,13 W/m2K • Natural renewable and health material • Enemy moisture
  • Permaculture in urban areas
  • Green roofs •Improving microclimate •Extend lifetime of the roofs •Absorbs rain and returns in natural flows instead to canalization system •Improving air quality •Enhance biodiversity •Can produce food •Decorative and relaxing effect •Reducing level of noise
  • Vertical gardens
  • Torri Superiore
  • Legambiente CEA Girasole
  • Lake with wetlands plants
  • Permaculture family at foothills of the Alps
  • Permaculture practice in Serbia and Balkan countries
  • Recycling farm Vukomeric
  • House of old handcrafts Mošorin
  • Thanks for listening 
