Generate abundance, build ecological & social health and resilience
In this unique intensive three-day workshop students will work with Mobile Design Lab to create a permaculture design for real clients on a one acre property in Northampton, MA. A month later we will take the design off the paper and install the first phase in a permablitz.
Fruit trees, veggie beds, chickens, bees, mushrooms, rain gardens, an outdoor kitchen... where does it all go? Learn how you can design to work with the ecological realities of the site and clients goals, time and budget.
We will learn:
•How to analyze and assess a homestead (using a solar pathfinder, soil tests, data overlay & reading the landscape) •Tips on how to move from goals & site analysis and assessment to design concept
•How to use graphics and words to effectively communicate your ideas
•How to recommend the most appropriate permaculture techniques for the landscape and clients
