Urban Permaculture Including Chickens: Lawton Permaculture DVD

See a chicken coop made from strawbales which mutes the sound of roosters. And a dual purpose chicken coop that centers the chicken house with two (or more) gardens fenced on each sides. Chickens are allowed in at the end of growing season to clean up the plants and prepare the garden for the next planting. Once the new garden is established, chickens can come back to demolish pests and clean up fallen produce.

Lawton loves chooks (Australian for chickens) and even describes himself as a Permaculture Rooster. This is part of a chapter on raising the animal species that meet his criteria for sharing close quarters with humans: Quiet, small, productive, & helpful in the garden.

There is also a chapter on Aquaculture which is excellent.

Urban Permaculture is the most intensive Permaculture of all. There are almost 100 minutes of creative Permaculture strategies to use in small scale garden design including:
   Mini Swales
   Food Hedges
   Chickens & Small Animals
   Strawbale Chicken Homes
   Water tanks
   Vertical Gardens
   Grey water reed beds
   Rocket stoves
   Worm Towers
   Wicking Beds
   Medicinal Herbs
   Spiral Herb Gardens
   Three day Permablitz Consultancy
And, of course, Growing Vegetables in your garden

If you want to eat, please come early to order. I will be there at 2:00 to eat myself.
