Create Your Sustainable Future Today

Apply Permaculture principles to your homestead…

  • Reduce food costs
  • Improve water availability & quality
  • Boost fertility & biodiversity
  • Lower energy expenses
  • Increase self-reliance
  • Create abundance!

In a three-hour Permaculture site evaluation, I’ll examine your home & land, determine your needs, and suggest design elements & systems that will maximize sustainability for the long term. This evaluation is not a complete Permaculture design, but serves as a wellspring of ideas which you can implement as time and resources allow.

Design considerations include…

  • Site orientation & solar access
  • Water flow, catchment & storage
  • Sustainable food systems
  • Graywater suitability and system options
  • Energy flow and renewable energy systems
  • Natural building materials & methods
  • Animal systems
  • Waste management & sanitation, composting toilets, etc.

By investing a bit of money up front and designing right the first time, you will save thousands of dollars in unnecessary expenses and maintenance over the lifetime of your system. If you have a piece of raw land and are itching to get started, call me first before putting any elements (home, structures, roads/trails, water, septic, animals, etc.) into place! Similarly, if you want to apply permaculture to an existing home-site, call me for an evaluation and save thousands in wasted energy, materials, and maintenance costs.

I was really impressed with your report and details. I am following them inch by inch. I will certainly recommend you and your services. Hope to see you at one of your permaculture meetings. I learning lots and have so much more to learn. I am now looking through new eyes and seeing lots of possibilities.
Most appreciatively,
Jean – Auburn, CA
