I organized a group purchase of skirret a few years ago, and distributed at least 15 skirret plants out to people in Vancouver - anyone have a baby they're willing to part with in the spring? I moved, and had an understanding with the people that bought my house that I'd come back in the fall and get the plants that would rather not be transplanted in August.. but they weeded out the skirret :/
If anyone has a baby, or has tried skirret and didn't really like it, please let me know. Mine didn't really like the heavy acidic soil I planted them in, and so they never got big enough that I would risk tasting them.
If everyone is happy with their skirret, and no one has any to give up, perhaps someone could share a story of their skirret? Now that I don't have any, I'm wondering how that experiment worked out.
"Permaculture. A copyright word, owned as a common copyright by the Permaculture Institutes & their graduates. Derived from ‘Permanent’ and ‘Culture’, as follows:
Permanent: From the Latin permanens, to remain to the end, to persist throughout (per = through, manere = to continue)
Culture: From the Latin cultura - cultivation of land, or the intellect. Now generalized to mean all those habits, beliefs, or activities than sustain human societies.
Thus, Permaculture is the study of the design of those sustainable or enduring systems that support human society, both agricultural & intellectual, traditional & scientific, architectural, financial & legal. It is the study of integrated systems, for the purpose of better design & application of such systems" -Bill Mollison Permaculture.net
"Permaculture Design is not the rain, the roof, or the garden. Permaculture Design is the connections between these things. Permaculture brings cohesion where there was once isolation."
"The practice of designing sustainable human habitats by following nature's patterns." -Organic Gardening
"Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature; of protracted & thoughtful observation rather than protracted & thoughtless action; of looking at systems in all their functions rather than asking only one yield of them & of allowing systems to demonstrate their own evolutions." -Bill Mollison
Meet other local people who are interested in Permaculture, urban sustainability and related issues. Meetups are typically held on the third Thursday of every month at 7:00 pm.
