The Adaptive Contour Access Path (ACAP) approach to enable access and enhance polyculture crop production on a steep hill in a tropical humid climate. ACAP Agroforestry Enhancing Biodiversity. Bamboo, Vetiver grass and permanent producing tropical fruit trees, shrubs and herbs as well as endemic flowers. We have planted about 18 different plants – most of them for food production. Enhancing the microorganism and mycorrhiza of the soil.
showcase what can be achieved in a record time of just 24 month. In Neotropical Climate, with depleted red clay soil. On a, topographic speaking, Tropical Mountain Rainforest. With Guadua angustifolia – bamboo.
From our experience, it’s not clear for most people that transforming an area in such a short time frame is absolutely doable with bamboo. This can be inspiration for others to use bamboo for rapid transformation of tropical depleted soil.
A good tropical permaculture design plan is generally focused on long-lasting, low maintenance, high accessibility while enjoying abundant food supply and the fauna biodiversity.
Permaculture Zone Design & Planning – Framework to help landowners understand how to organize their property into zones, raise healthy livestock, understand how to irrigate with minimal water, grow an abundant supply of edibles to last the entire year.
Permaculture is a 10,000-year-old technology based on knowledge of our tribal ancestors. It’s not only a sustainable way to grow own food (fruit, vegetables and animals) but an holistic lifestyle and philosophy. We are all visitors of this time, of this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, grow, love… and then return home.
Permaculture is a holistic system with principles and techniques to achieve long-term auto regenerative systems, obviously without exploiting resources or creating any pollution.
