We help people transform their yard, be it big or small, into a resilient, sustainable haven that meets their needs. We work with everyone from people growing in small spaces such as urban backyards and community gardens to larger properties and farms.
First port of call is almost always a site inspection. This includes a scientifically trained permaculturalist coming around to your place to look and interact with the property and preferably with the household. We give hints and tips and advice on the spot and can draw up rough designs or diagrams that might be helpful. Our trained biologist can identify any pest in the system and detailed advice can be emailed to you. We can also get you up to date on all the latest info on becoming sustainable.
From there we have three ways to continue:
If you are a keen gardener and just need the advice of experts to get to your goals, regular “site inspection and advice” sessions will suit you to a tee.
If your garden projects are a little bigger than you anticipated or you want to take on a bigger project, we can give you a hand and teach you as we go. Our “garden action and education” package offers a range of hands on permaculture solutions, from frog ponds to composting.
If you’d prefer a more hands off approach we can do the leg work and manual labour involved, implementing permaculture techniques in your garden that will work, with minimal input and effort.
Some areas we offer expert advice in include:
- Chickens, poultry, quails, guinea pigs etc
- Food forests
- Fruit trees / Orchards
- Ground cover crops and Green manures
- Insects, from the pests to the good ones
- Organic gardening
- Holistic management
