Making a permaculture design consists of 3 steps.
1) Your Ideas and Desires
A permaculture project always starts with a permaculture consultant visits the project location. From there it's a collaborative process that starts with your ideas and wishes, and that continues until the finished permaculture design plan.
What do you want? Is really the only questions we ask in the information forms we fill in together. All your ideas plans and thoughts are relevant. So for you, it's about coming up with everything that could be interesting for you to do in your permaculture project.
You should complete an information forms with all your ideas plans and thoughts, to have it all included in the feasibility study which you will be part of making.
2) The feasibility studies
After we find out your ideas and wishes for the project, we'll find a common understanding of what it is we are going to do. PF will then start the investigation, starting with finding publicly available data and information about your project location.
Then there will be a new visits to the project location, where we find out the options available and the techniques that can be used.
Prepare a project outline with the zone plans which describes the place and the development possibilities that exist.
The project outline should only be seen as a proposal for the permaculture design plan.
3) Permaculture Design Plan
PF knows from the project outline how the natural conditions are like sun, wind, water, landscape, buildings and other fixed elements, from the project sketches we also have information about what to do and to some extent how.
To make the permaculture design plan, everything must now be measured accurately and investigated. There must be contour maps, earth maps, sun and wind maps, sector analysis maps and a zone plan.
SOIL, PLANTS, ANIMALS
All design elements, ie. (animals, plants, buildings, earthworks, etc.) are placed in the right places. Thus, it all becomes tied together. so it will be as a single biological entity (one living unit) that, after the creation period, will be self-supporting and regenerative.
