Permaculture is a land use design method that works by closely observing site-specific natural processes so that ecosystems can be regenerated and human habitats become resilient and sustainable.  Clients are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the basic concepts of permaculture so that and effective collaboration with ERD ensues.  ERD offers consultations, basic concept design as well as full site design services for the sustainable development of your land using the principles and ethics of permaculture.  ERD produces educational lectures and workshops to the public throughout the year.  


ERD performs a two hour walk through assessment of your land, providing permaculture possibilities in relationship to your vision of the site.  This includes a PDF summary of our recommendation in order of priority.

A basic concept design lays out a general permaculture plan for your property. This is a good place to start for clients who have some experience with permaculture and would like to develop a full design themselves. A basic concept design includes:

  • Written assessment, analysis and summary of recommendations

  • Design recommendation overlaid on your base map

  • General plant list to be applied

Basic Concept Design

A full site design involves developing  detailed specifications for your site including a cost estimate and implementation details.

  • Written assessment, analysis and summary of recommendations

  • Detailed design recommendation overlaid on your base map

  • Specific plant list with suppliers noted

  • Implementation timetable

  • Estimated cost analysis for implementation
