Sprout Village

Created by: sproutvillage on 2024-01-02 • List type: guild • Visibility: Public

The Sprout Village Permaculture Orchard - created for the Upstate NY climate for growing zones 5b, 6a, 6b with a winter temperature extreme range from -26.1C (-15f) to -20.6C (-5f).

Designed for up to 30 degree inclines of Class 1-3 nonirrigated capability, Udic, Aeric, & Aquic soils with swale channeled pond drainage to support rotational free range chicken and duck habitats.

Core regional challenges are Appalachian foothill inclines, field drainage, and cold hardiness.

Much of the region is designated ‘Moderate Inherent Productivity’ (>50%) with a secondary balance of Moderate Low and Moderate High productivity values (~12% each).

Soil Health is classified as Mineral Subsidence, Low/Fair response to biochar, Very Limited Composting Facility, Moderately Fragile, Low Surface Seal, Moderate Low/Moderate organic matter (OM) depletion, Somewhat limited aerobic soil organisms, Medium compaction susceptibility, Low surface salination
