Applying our Permaculture Principles of Positive Solutions, Obtaining a yield and making a right livelihood
Over the years several magnificent trees have fallen down in storms around here and were just left to rot. This is a common event on farms and seems such a waste. Sure we need to leave the majority of trees to decay for all the obvious reasons of habitat, organic matter etc, but we can and should use a few of them to their highest capacity, to obtain a yield, produce no waste, produce useful things we need like building, fencing, making tables and turning them into high value timber to make a right livelihood.
It was a sad event last year to see a magnificent beauty fall to the ground after a storm and several days of rain. The tall timbers however have to give way for the new seedlings to emerge and flourish and one day also become majestic. It’s another reminder that nothing lasts forever.
It’s taken us awhile but now we are harvesting these yields and we are able to supply some amazing timber products for sale through the Permashop. We have a range of bread-boards; cheese platters; drink coasters; coffee table slab tops; extra large slabs for bench-tops, small and large tables, desks and bookshelves.
