What is Permaculture?

Image
Permaculture is a branch of ecological design, ecological engineering, environmental design, construction and integrated water resources management that develops sustainable architecture, regenerative and self-maintained habitat and agricultural systems modeled from natural ecosystems. The term permaculture (as a systematic method) was first coined by Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren in 1978. The word permaculture originally referred to "permanent agriculture" but was expanded to stand also for "permanent culture," as it was seen that social aspects were integral to a truly sustainable system as inspired by Masanobu Fukuoka's natural farming philosophy. “ Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless labor; and of looking at plants and animals in all their functions, rather than treating any area as a single product system. —Bill Mollison

Coffee cherry wine. Or coffee fruit wine is been something people have tried before. But it has not been able to happen. The reasons behind the failed of trying that has been the ability to collect the fruit pulp from the coffee beans! This year 2016 we tried our first batch of it. How did we do it. We first got to stop the water use to rinse it away. Then with a coffee been press we were able to remove the coffee fruit pulp from the coffee beans. Resulta: 5000 litters of pulp a year. We haven't made it all. But this year we have tried 40 different recepies. A Total of about 200 gallons. As we are not wine makers, we've been learning. So like half of that was thrown away. But 100 gallons of different types of wines is a huge good result for this first try! We have been trying new things and learning from books, internet, people. And with 6 months of reserch we started this project. Learn more about our coffee wine
