Who is it for?

New or Potential Property

Identify ahead of purchasing a property what are the advantages, opportunities, resources and challenges with a particular piece of land. Purchasing the right piece of land for your use could save thousands of dollars in the short term and tens of thousands in the long term.

Existing Property

Identify how to better use the land and buildings to reduce wasted time, decrease energy costs and improve overall liveability.

Experienced with Sustainability & Permaculture

Permaculture brings a whole new perspective to gardening, sustainability, farming/agriculture and land use that will open allow you to see your site in a different way.

New to Sustainability & Permaculture

Learn how permaculture can apply to your land and life or what the potentials are with living a more sustainable life.

DIY Crowd

Some DIY’ers just need confirmation that their sustainability ideas are going to benefit them and a consult is perfect to find this out.

Non DIY Crowd

For those that would prefer the hand-off approach a consult will be the first of three phases, followed by a design phase and installation phase, which in sum will bring your sustainable goals to fruition.

What should I expect during a consult?

Every consultation is unique to the people and the property. A consultation is typically an assessment of the site and the lives of those living there from a permanent culture perspective.

A consultation is not so much a “use this plant here” or “you have aphids so bring in some ladybugs” type of consult – rather a global perspective on the property or scenario – e.g. “some natives plants in this area may help with…” or a “series of swales may catch good rainwater on this property”. From there these ideas, if you want to explore them further, can be used and implemented by yourself or High Sierra Permaculture can design and install the recommended permaculture improvements.

Due to the wide range of topics permaculture covers there are bound to be specific questions that can’t be answered onsite. Therefore I offer to write them down and report back later with a the answer from a permaculture perspective.
