What Can a Permaculture Design do for you?
Use the permaculture design process to integrate your landscape into the natural environment of the Mojave Desert. Save on watering by storing moisture in the ground and reducing evaporation. Build rich soil with waste. Add fresh food to your diet, herbal medicines to your cabinet, renewable fuel to your fire and traditional fibers to your wardrobe (optional).
Our approach to your Permaculture Design.
We start by seeking to understand your context. The combination of your situation, your goals and your perspective. Then we evaluate your land’s needs and potential. Finally we align the two. We will then be able to see how providing for your land can provide for you. At this point your land becomes so much more than a yard.
During the walk-through we will talk about the characteristics of your land. We will look at the slope of your yard, the placement of buildings and other hard surfaces. This determines what options are available for capturing the deserts most scarce resource water. We will look at the condition of your soils and what an increase of water capture could do for them. We will determine the orientation of your yard which contributes to your solar exposure each season. This is how you determine the best way to provide shade. With water being the scarcest resource evaporation is a top concern.
We will also ask that you describe what kind of benefits you would like to get from your land. We will discuss how your context influences permaculture zone placement. Zones are divided by the resources they contain and how often they are visited.
At the end of the walk-through you will have a clearer idea of your yard’s needs and what it can give. The initial consultation is free and comes with no obligations.
Property stewards who receive a free consultation may request a complete custom permaculture design of their property. Great Basin Permaculture is a non profit. Custom designs are done on a donation basis.
We look forward to getting to know you and your land.
