Permaculture design is a regenerative whole system science that employs a core set of principles and ethics in conjunction with a toolbox of land design frameworks to foster greater biodiversity, food resilience and ecological balance.
Our consultation process provides insight into the potential of your landscape from an ecological, economical and productivity perspective while building in resilience and confidence in the ability to weather unexpected shocks.
Is a Permaculture Design Consultant right for you and your property?
Gardening is one of life’s simplest pleasures and can be undertaken by anyone interested in growing fresh food or being outdoors.
And we’ve found that most people are very capable of growing their own food, managing an efficient household and interacting with animals. For DIY people, online how to’s and informative articles are always there to better grasp the basics or focus on a specific topic of interest.
However, challenges can arise when it comes to envisioning the possibilities and interpreting the inherent and unique complexities of an individual site. There are many factors that contribute to the overall health and productivity of the land which aren’t always readily apparent. This is where a designer can clarify the subtleties and recommend a course of action appropriate to your specific site conditions, personal needs and budget.
A Permaculture designer appreciates the reward of uncovering a cohesive and efficient design capable of utilising the full potential of resources hidden in the landscape, whether it’s a subtle slope that builds drought resilience or a well placed tree system that regulates site temperature variations, builds soil and produces an abundance of food into the future.
A design consultation takes it to that next level through a passive yet collaborative and immersive process that builds knowledge and relationship between the land, client and designer in re-establishing natural fertility and water cycles, regenerating degraded soils and achieving an optimal balance of investment to yield.
