Community Permaculture Design

June 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Do you want to go around the city imagining how we can turn everyone’s backyard into a permaculture homestead?

I do consultations where the homeowner and I imagine the perfect backyard homestead, but often times they don’t have the time or resources to put it in place. And other folks don’t have a yard to call their own, but want to learn how to approach permaculture design so they will be ready when the time comes. 

Well it’s time to combine our workshops and consultations, so that you can learn how a permaculture designer approaches a property in need of inspiration. This is a new program, and our long time supporter, Karen, is going to be our guinea pig! I have consulted for her in the past and the yard is ENORMOUS and has more edible perennials and native trees than you can shake a stick at. We are going to address her specific needs with:

– compost
– chickens
– plant irrigation for veggie beds
– general maintenance
– water management

We will probably also address things she doesn’t need at all, just because its really easy and fun to get carried away with permaculture dreaming!

One thing that is really special about Karen is that she is interested in finding the right people to have plots and projects in her (did I mention ENORMOUS?) backyard. Which is great because if this new program goes well, we will have a follow up where we do an installation under professional guidance. What better a way to get experience for the day you get your dream property?

$20-35 sliding scale, please let us know if cost is an issue.
