Professional Services – Consulting & Master Planning

Consultations with The Permaculture Project LLC and Bio-Culture are based on uncovering the sacred nature of the earth and recognizing the “spirit of place.” This foundation enables our clients to learn for themselves, how reading their property and engaging in finding the “spirit of place” connects them to their land.

The Permaculture Project LLC and Bio-Culture work closely with the Permaculture Design Build Collaborative LLC in the implementation of master plans. We have several crews that work all around the US. From design to putting these systems on the ground. This precludes the need for a full set of construction drawings, budgets, and timelines.

Our professional team of expert designers and technicians, will create a master plan with you that will move you along a simple trajectory to food self-sufficiency, ecologically sound living, energy efficiency and ecosystem restoration on your property.

One of the essential goals of our work – along with master planning for sites and education – is ecological restoration of degraded landscapes (this includes the built environment, gardening and farming, the waste stream, use of energy, etc.) Ecological restoration is the practice of renewing and restoring degraded, damaged, or destroyed ecosystems and habitats in the environment by active human intervention and action.

How does a Permaculture Project LLC and Bio-Culture design process work?

The Permaculture Project LLC offers consulting services that are performed using all or portions of a 5-phase comprehensive design and implementation process. Consultations include one or more of the following: assessment and inventory of property, GPS/GIS, Sketchup animation, CAD drawings, hand drawings, drone surveys, drone camera pictures and videos (aerials).

A General Framework of the Design Process:

  • Identify key ideas, essential thoughts
  • Climate?
  • How is the fertility of the property? It’s carrying capacity?
  • What ecosystem services are on hand at the site?
  • What materials are available locally?
  • What is the Native /settlement history?
  • What are the preexisting patterns?
  • What patterns will we place upon the preexisting patterns/changes?
  • Build in infrastructure
  • Run through the Scale of Permanence in mixed order (of importance based on the site)

How long does it take to get a The Permaculture Project LLC master plan / design completed?

Generally, master planning and design work that includes concept plans and a full narrative report takes about 1 calendar month. The duration may change based on the size of the property and the goals of the client.

More detail about each of our Project Phases is provided on the Master Planning page. To see various case studies, please check out our Portfolio page.

All of Bio-Culture and The Permaculture Project LLC design work is based on an understanding of the underlying geometrical matrix of “place”. Through a thorough assessment and inventory of a site, we identify these “sacred” patterns and develop a master plan based exclusively on these patterns. What lies within the essential patterns of your site?

Through a Canon of number and proportion, geometry and measure, the laws of form which relate mind and matter are encoded into the whole fabric of culture. Environment is a formative field, a harmonic envelope, resonating with the forces of nature and conditioning man to higher, more integrated states of being. Sacred Geometry as archetypal pattern reconciles material values with spiritual values.  It reveals the pattern and process of natural law.
