PERMACULTURE FARM DESIGN
Welcome to Module 3: CONCEPT DESIGN (WHOLE FARM LAYOUT)
In this module, you begin with drawing up your design.
This is the conceptual planning stage, where you create the main skeleton, a whole farm layout with a configuration for: 1) water systems, 2) infrastructure, and 3) land use areas.
Nailing this macro pattern is the main challenge of the design!
First, learn about the permaculture design framework you’ll use during this design process. Then, armed with that knowledge start unfolding your design.
Start with the water systems, then design the core infrastructure layer (the main access roads, house and fences), finally clearly define land use areas and determine the specific purpose they’ll fulfil.
At the end of this step, you’ll have overall pattern of the whole farm layout, outlining major site features.
