Design:

We create a Permaculture Design based on a number of factors including: the goals you have for your land, the natural elements; sun exposure, water, slope, soil as well as budgets and timelines. You receive a detailed map with species recommendations, planting locations and a landscape guide complete with species functions and care techniques. 

 
The Process:

Step 1: Articulate the Goals: I will provide you with a questionnaire to learn more about the goals you have for your property or project. 

 

Step 2: Base Mapping: We will create a map that provides a clear analysis and assessment of the zones and sectors on your property including: existing plantings, structures, sun exposure, soil, slope, water, air and pathways of circulation of your land. 

 

Step 3: Recommendations are made based on the analysis of your property that include phases and budgets. 

 

Step 4: Installation: Implementation of the design that includes specific techniques to improve soil quality and enrich native habitat. The installation can happen in phases or in one season depending on size, scale, and resources available.

Consultation:

A consultation is a 2(+) -hour walk around your property. We begin discussing your priorities, goals, and questions. I base my recommendations on what makes sense for your landscape and your goals, providing all information needed to move forward with specifics including the location of plantings, siting of compost pile(s), gardens, trees, hedgerows, varieties and more. I then make myself available for follow-up questions as long as needed. 

 

 
 
Education:

I believe that education is an important tool for applying permaculture to your life. I teach on a variety of topics related to landscape design, gardening, composting and more. 

 

The following topics can be catered to any audience: 

Permaculture Design Certificate Courses, Permaculture 101, Social Permaculture, Composting, Compost Tea, Soil Health, Creating a Forest Garden, Fruit Orcharding, Pruning, Companion Planting, Guilds & Polycultures, Whole Foods Nutrition, Fermenting Vegetables and more!
