Site Data and Digital Design
Tutorial (2.5-hrs.)

In these two recorded sessions, we carefully explain how we gather all the site data off the internet that we typically need to do an initial property assessment. Then we give a detailed demonstration of how we create our professional-looking permaculture design maps using PowerPoint or Google-Slides. 

Live On-line Design Charrettes

Six times/year we host an open design charrette where we take a real person’s residential or homestead property and share our process as we walk through the design steps. We create a simple framework design right on the spot.

Why take a permaculture course?

Floods, droughts, storms and pandemics are likely on the rise

Permaculture courses lay out tools, paths and skills we as humans can use to work with each other, and nature, to minimize global disruptions while also improving the health of all life on this planet. This training is all about being the change that brings us toward real and lasting solutions.
