A permaculture garden without food in it seems like a contradiction but I guess you could do one for medicinals only. I worked on some revegetation projects in whistler and I have to warn you that we had more issues with bears and lush vegetative growth than youd expect. Not just fruits I'm afraid. If you based it heavily on things that have strong or bitter flavours you might have better luck. They don't like sitka valerian at all but the complex might not either. I would be looking at combining some classic herb garden elements with native plants. I wish i could tell you an example to go look at but I cant think of an established permaculture garden tthat doesnt incorporate food. How much room do you have to work with?

Hi Everyone,

I have put a permaculture landscaping proposal to my Strata council for my Whistler complex and the chairman has asked if there are any good sites he could visit.  I've recently returned to Canada from Scotland where I did my design course so I am not yet familiar with what is around here.  The whole concept of Permaculture is new to the board so I am looking for sites that are more decorative and herbal than food oriented.  We have to be bear aware so growing food is not going to happen here.  Our complex is mostly nightly rentals with a few long term tenants and a growing number of resident owners.  Can anyone suggest some places he could visit to see the potential?
