Welcome to the Cork Permaculture Club

Permaculture videos are organised by "Permaculture Zones & Sectors".

In Permaculture we loosely divide up the design into Zones according to the amount of attention each area requires so as to reduce the amount of time and distance to travel
Zone 0 – Home & indoor production (sprouts/ferments) and processing of food, waste, water collection, repairs and education.
Zone 1 – Area outdoors needing regular observation, tending and harvesting eg. plants we can browse and use each day.-Polytunnels.- intensive garden beds with keyhole access.
Zone 2 – Less intensive managed areas but with animals needing daily attention eg. poultry, rabbits, worm farm, snail farm. Orchard trees.
Zone 3 – Occassionally visited areas with self-fed animals (stock) and seasonal wide ranging crops eg. corn, wheat, rice, pumpkin, bamboo.
Zone 4 – Wild food gathering (eg. nuts, native fruits) Wood for Fuel, self seeding trees.
Zone 5 – Natural area – a rarely visited area. linked with neighbouring wildlife corridors.

Another concept in Permaculture is Sectors. A Sector is a force or flow of energy such as People, Animals, Sun, Wind, Water, Access and many others into or out of your Permaculture site. By mapping out sectors we can influence our design to take advantage of each sectors properties. A good example would be optimizing solar water heaters to the winter sun angle to provide maximum solar gain.
