    hi

    I am planning to bulid a gulid specfic to my region, there are none yet but i ll be the first to bulid one.

    Any advices, links, personal experience, guide lines for spefic things like deciding gulid size, shape, acceability, or even general rule about plant staking anyone like to share?

    Everybody input in what ever ways or parts he knows is more than appracited.

    PS: I left out the choose of species out on a purpose. I prefer the gulid to be about buliding gulids and general technique and guide lines.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Suhaim,
    Here's a couple of bits about general guild design, with an eye towards the functions provided by various elements:

    https://permaculturenews.org/2015/10/23/piecing-together-a-guild-of-your-own/

    https://www.neverendingfood.org/b-what-is-permaculture/permaculture-guilds/

    Guilds will also include considerations for animals, even small ones such as chickens and rabbits, in addition to wild birds, beneficial insects (predators and pollinators), and amphibians/reptiles. This is where observation comes in: to determine what wildlife is indigenous to the area and make guild provisions for their homes/food/safety while reaping the benefits of their manures/predation/pollination.
