Permaculture Consultation in Santa Cruz, CA

The following are images of a design that I created for a client in Santa Cruz, CA.  The design strives to provide a nice space for gathering with a fire pit, while maximizing space for growing and the integration of greywater from the roof run-off and laundry.  There are many intricacies, such as using old trees to grow mushrooms, using the ash from the fire place as a soil amendment, and grafting onto existing fruit trees.

Contact me for a consultation.  Services include strategies and techniques for: practical compost, greywater integration, edible/medicinal/herbal plant guilds, soil health, mushroom growing, solar energy and more.  Each house and yard is an exciting new opportunity to create a wholesome and integrative environment based on each person’s needs.
