Computer Aided Permaculture Design and Site Assessment with Internet Resources
Sat, 01/15/2011 - 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Designing your city lot or homestead in the woods? Have a concept for a community farm garden or CSA? Much of the information you need is free and on-line.
Paper and pencil is the tool of choice for outdoor base-maps and site assessments, but a great amount of information about our properties is also on the internet. Aerial photos and surveys are just a small portion of what you have available. Plugging in all that information to a computer does not have to be tedious. Designing a well thought out plan is fun and easy to adjust with inexpensive software. This workshop will open the data mines of the web to serious Permaculture and Polyculture designers. Basic site assessment, plant databases, aerial imagery, and standard graphic design tools will help you break into the next level of Permaculture design.
(This class is a precursor to the 12 hour design process series.)
