Evolution of a Designed Permaculture System: The system evolves to a semi-hardy stage. Geese, fish, and shellfish are introduced and crops include some aquatic plant species. An evolved system provides forage, firewood, aquatic and animal product. Larger foragers (sheep, pigs) can be grown seasonally. The system provides its own mulch and fertilizers. The mature system requires management rather than energy input, and has a variety of marketable yields. #livingecology #permacultureinternship

Chinampa is a method of ancient Mesoamerican agriculture which used small, rectangular areas of fertile arable land to grow crops on the shallow lake beds in the Valley of Mexico. These “floating gardens" were used by the ancient Aztec. They were created by staking out the shallow lake bed and then fencing in the rectangle with wattle. The fenced-off area was then layered with mud, lake sediment, and decaying vegetation, eventually bringing it above the level of the lake.
