Nice to meet you Josef. Good to hear of other like-minded folks in my neck of the woods. I've read a fair amount - Mollison, Holzer and Shein's new book. Been reading lots online and have been through most of Paul's podcasts. Right now I'm trying to determine my zones. Thankfully, with my property (see shot below) is fairly straightforward.
I plan on Zone 1 being most of the "YARDE". Chicken coop is already built just south of the shed on the western edge of the yard. Herb and vegetable plots will go in next spring.
Zone 2 will come south of the creek, once I finish clearing out a bunch of buckthorn. The plan here is to use the fallen wood to create hugelkultur beds that will support an orchard. I hope buckthorn is suitable for this, because I have 3/4 an acre of the stuff. Not wimpy trees either - big, established trees. My chainsaw has been busy.
Zone 3 is the area marked "Prairie." It's fallow farmland (last farmed in 1967) that has a ton of diversity already. I hope to clear some areas any get some nitrogen fixation this fall before I do some test plantings in the spring. (Probably start with 3 sisters, some Jerusalem artichoke, etc. as an experiment)
Zones 4 & 5 would be on the southern end of the prairie. Because the satellite photo is in early spring and I think a bit outdated, it doesn't show just how dense the forest is here. I've already transplanted wild ramps here in the spring and hope to explore mushroom growing here, as it's a dark, established forest.
Also, I've started a blog at http://www.colloquial.org/
to document some of my progress. Maybe some folks here would be interested in following along. Excited to finally have a place to start planning for!
