Join Geoff Lawton as he creates a permaculture design for a classic temperate landscape on location whilst presenting and teaching each step of the way in this special earthworks and design consultation workshop. This workshop will give you first-hand insights to Geoff Lawton best practices and work principles in action.
We will take you through the design and consultation process from the observation and conceptual stages, through to finalize the design and presentation to the client. This workshop is intended to help springboard a permaculture practitioner to become a confident permaculture consultant as well as give practitioners the confidence to implement earthworks jobs on their own property.
*This workshop will be taking place in WASHINGTON USA on location at the client’s property.
This course leads students to understand the process of permaculture designed earthworks and the way to observe a site and define the possibilities and the requirements of a client.
To design and create an efficient permaculture design homestead that minimizes the client’s energy consumption and land maintenance time while maximizing biodiversity and abundance. The design should have room for expansion and improvement for their future generations to enjoy with low maintenance.
There are no existing structures or electricity on the property yet, the clients would like to install swales, dams and terraces and artisan water well.
The land is mostly forested with an abundance of native trees and wildlife. The clients love nature and wildlife and would like to attract native elk, deer and bear to the land. They also plan to design furniture with the available timber on the lot and donate or sell excess harvest from the planned 2-3-acre orchard and gardens in the surrounding communities.
a television producer from New York City, happened upon permaculture while researching chicken coops for a reality show project! After watching Geoff Lawton’s chicken tractor on steroids and all of his videos online, she immediately enrolled in his PDC in 2017 and again in 2019.
grew up off the grid in the Alaskan wilderness, hunting, fishing and building.
Since Allison introduced him to permaculture, he has been hard at work bringing their dreams of a self-sustaining permaculture paradise ranch to fruition.
They are thrilled to be hosting this unique permaculture earthworks & design workshop.
