Permaculture Design Consultation
Want to turn your lawn into a beautiful edible landscape? I'll help you come up with a permaculture design for your home and landscape.
For the uninitiated, permaculture (permanent agriculture) can be thought of as applied ecological design geared toward producing food, energy, and other human needs from your home and landscape. Permaculture design mimics natural ecosystems with an aim of producing no waste. Whether you have a tiny balcony in the city, a suburban yard, or a hundred-acre farm, permaculture design can help you grow your own food, save energy, reduce waste, and enrich your life!
Fruit trees, berries, herbs, vegetables, rainwater harvesting, ponds, edible flowers, small animal systems, worm composting, mobile chicken coops are just some examples of elements that might feature in a permaculture design. The possibilities are limitless.
If you are nearby (within a 45 minute drive) I could make a site visit, which would be ideal. For non-local requests, we can work over the phone and use google earth for a site map.

About Adam Dusen
I'm an organic farmer and permaculturist with a real passion for regenerative growing practices, ecological landscape design, sustainable living, and natural building, among other things. My farm is v...ery diverse with many different kinds of fruit and berries (including lots of unusual kinds), free range chickens, pastured pigs, geese, vegetables, mushrooms, and a lot more on the way or in development. I love to help people who want to pursue an eco-friendly lifestyle and share many of these values. I'm a great gardener and can help teach people how to garden; I can help people design their yards to be productive and beautiful edible systems; I can teach people about taking care of farm animals of various kinds; If there's some way you want to make your life more sustainable and ecologically in-tune, I can probably help with it!show moreOpen to other proposals
