The basis of permaculture gardening is working with rather than against nature, while striving to gain substantial yields of good food, fun, and a beautiful yard in the most sustainable and regenerative ways we can.
This implies studying ecosystem patterns, mimicking successful designs found in nature, using all organic methods, as well as incorporating a worldview that respects the intrinsic value of nature.
A permaculture perspective sees humans as a literal piece of the earth and realizes that as such we are not inherently bad for the planet. It realizes that there is a wide and growing array of solutions for the troubles our world faces, many of which can be implemented quite easily in people’s back yards; the simplest and perhaps most profound of which is the innocent act of putting a seed in the ground.
Our belief is that we can help you tap into the many benefits of permaculture gardening by educating you about the permaculture principles, communicating our approach to permaculture gardening, and presenting plans on how successful gardens could really be implemented in your yard.
Some of the main value points of our approach to permaculture gardening are:
- Abundant food production
- Low maintenance
- Health and nutrient density in garden produce
- Ecosystem regeneration
- Natural aesthetics
- Family / social space
- Cost effectiveness
- Self sufficiency
- Learning valuable life skills
- Educating others
- Meditation space
- Incorporating your creative ideas!
If you are already sure you want to follow through and have a permaculture garden installed this year, filling out our free 5 page Garden Questionnaire is the first step towards doing so, and this leads into an onsite meeting and the rest of our Initial Consultancy Package.
If you are simply interested in learning more, yet not sure how committed you are to starting a garden just yet, in this meeting we can help you find out what could be within your limits, fast-track your knowledge on permaculture gardening, or help you discover how a low-maintenance garden could quite literally work for you.
The Initial Consultancy package is where we help you articulate and quantify your gardening goals, discover a significant amount of inspiring ideas, methods, and approaches which are realistic, integrated, and personalized to you and your property, understand some of the basic natural principles and science behind it (if you want) and then help you start to form a timeline, budget and maintenance schedule for your potential new gardens.
Our goal with this package is to help your overall awareness of what is possible on your property increase significantly, even if you are an experienced gardener.
It’s where we will both begin to see the extent of how we might work together in the future, and what kind of approaches we can offer that will best help you meet your goals.
