🌿 Permaculture Design “Live Consultation” with Brian Kerkvliet
May 25 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm$65
Consultation site is located near Concrete in Skagit Valley,
A live consultation allows one to be involved in the Permaculture design design process. You will have the opportunity to observe the design considerations and decisions involved in obtaining the best design for the goals of the client considering the possibilities and limitations of the property. The beauty of this kind of event is that it is dealing with a real property and real design parameters and constraints. Seeing the design process first hand allows one to better design their own land without having to attend a full 2 week permaculture design course.
Design Steps involved include:
- Client interview and discussion
- Design considerations, goals & strategies
- Walk the land and sketch design considerations and parameters
- define property’s zones
- Identifying sector influence
- Water strategies in the landscape
- How to utilize on site resources to maximum system benefit
- Put information together to map out a site plan
- Evaluate resources and set a realistic timeline and phased implementation plan
Join us in the beautiful North Cascades as we learn together how to read a landscape and plan for a sustainable system using Permaculture Design Principles with experienced Permaculturalist Brian Kerkvliet of Inspiration Farm.
