ECOLOGICAL SURVEY

Discover the land potential

The best approach to ensure the most efficient, effective and beautiful outcome for any development project (especially those requiring interdisciplinary  collaboration) starts with an Ecological Survey. In order to do this, we rely not only on the Triple Ethic (Earth Care/People Care/Fair Share) and Core Principles of Permaculture but also on a design tool called the Scale of Permanence. This scale divides a whole system into 10 equal functional components:

 

  1. Climate

  2. Landform

  3. Water

  4. Access & Circulation

  5. Vegetation & Wildlife

  6. Microclimates

  7. Buildings & Infrastructure

  8. Zones of Use

  9. Soil Fertility & Management

  10. Aesthetic

 

CONSULTANCY & BASIC DESIGN

Walk & talk solutions

Our team members will walk with you through your property and in an informal conversation get an idea of the vision and goals you have for your own life and land.

 

Together we will read the landscape and discuss potential solutions within a whole systems design approach.

 

At the end of our time together, we will have gathered a list of tips and strategies on how you can apply permaculture design to your specific situation. Be it your garden, orchard, water systems, built systems or whatever you want to know. We will summarized all the important information in a basic design map.

 

The client most suited for this design package is someone who is a do-it-yourself and just needs some fresh eyes on the land and a whole systems design approach.
