Which design techniques do I have at my disposal & how do I know when to apply them? PART 2 of 2

There are a great number of design methods & it is important to choose those that are best suited to your particular circumstances & objectives.

In this class we look at some of those methods & talk about the criteria to take into account for their use.

  38. 79. Writes Talks Timer Support Groups
  39. 80. Guilds in Design A harmonious assembly of species around a central element (plant or animal) This assembly acts to assist health, aid our work in management, or buffer adverse environmental effects
  40. 81. Controlling pests, disease, hazards Save - energy accumulator Mimic the behavior and benefit of natural cycles-processes-patterns cause mutual benefits, create balance Yield without extra inputs Create a healthy habitat Encourage natural succession USES BENEFITS SYNERGIES
  41. 82. Crop Associations One plant attract other plant's predators Help with pest control Provide Nutrients Creating open soil surface conditions or providing mulch Reduce roots competition Provide physical shelter from Frost, sunburn, wind... To Facilitate Harvest
  42. 83. Some Associations GARLIC : prevents parasites and fungal diseases in all plants - don't use with legumes and cabbage. GARLIC, ONION or LEEK with CARROT: against the flies of both CORN with BEANS and CUCURBITS (not squash) against aphids. The beans can climb the maize & cucurbits grow below to keep weeds at bay. Although that may attract mildew. CARROTS WITH PEAS : The secretion of the roots of the first promotes the growth of the latter. CABBAGE with TOMATOES : Tomatoes mask the smell of cabbage and vice versa, preventing pests of both. Also the shape of cabbage can blend in with the tomatoes.
  43. 84. POTATOES benefit from a previous BEANS rotation to prevent fungal diseases. Comfrey also does very well around. SALAD with CELERY : lettuce in summer will benefit from the shadows & their roots do not compete for nutrients. CABBAGES & other BRASSICA with CLOVER : the latter repels cabbage butterfly BORAGE goes well with TOMATOES, ZUCCHINI and STRAWBERRY BASIL repels insects and goes well with TOMATOES and PEPPERS
  44. 86. Some Antagonists GARLIC, ONIONS, LEEKS go very poorly with LEGUMES because the first interfere with the fixing of nitrogen of the latter SUNFLOWER - Reduce the production of nearby plants, but also attract pest predators + changes the shape of the garden, misleading pests As a general rule do not plant species of the same family together, as they are affected by the same pests.
  45. 88. Physical Complementarity • Some plants like sunshine and other a bit of shadow in Summer. Lettuce & carrots can be planted with some plants that give them some shadow. • There are plants with deep roots and others with more superficial ones, these can be combined. Eg. TOMATOES & LETTUCES. • Plants with different maturation times can also be combined. Eg. CARROTS AND RADISHES. • Some insects recognize plants by their silhouette or odor and these can be camouflaged by other plants
  46. 89. Animal Associations GROUND FORAGERS FOR CLEARING THE ORCHARDS HENS DUCKS THAT CONTROL MOLLUSK POPULATION INSECTIVORES (birds)
  47. 91. FUKUOKA CLAY PELLETS • CLAY • TREE SEEDS • SUPPORT SEEDS • COMPOST

  51. 96. being designed ... Inspired by "Deep Green Resistance" Derreck Jensen Lierre Keith Aric MacBay
  52. 97. Observe carefully the historical patterns "If you don't know your history you're condemned to repeat it" Arnold J. Toynbee (british historian) Deduction from Nature Natural Patterns Natural Successions Pattern Language Apply Self-Regulation & Accept Feedback Which factors worked & did NOT work in all resistance movements to date?

  54. 99. Holacracy = self-organized teams (circles) structured in a holarchy (nested hierarchy) of different levels. Each circle defines & assigns roles needed to achieve aims Different levels are connected by a double-link They look for a “workable” decision at any one time Dynamic steering = feedback and continuous self-regulation, any decision can be revised at any time Common Vision
  55. 106. ... and methods of your own invention ... Design Methods
  56. 107. We want to see your presentation!! With your Process + your conclusions Sketches PMIs Motivation Vision & Mission Resources 2 Design Projects You have 15 minutes for your presentation Have option of asking for direct feedback or not Necessary to finish M2
  57. 108. Class 2.10 of the PDC+++ Which design techniques do I have at my disposal & how do I know when to apply them? PART 2 of 2 There are a great number of design methods & it is important to choose those that are best suited to your particular circumstances & objectives.
