Student from Homestead Design class in Hawaii.

Its great to see a design go from paper to soil.
 Nicole's started as all of them.  A Base map and bubble map concepts to final draft design.

Hey Dan,        Nicole Ross Blog on PRI-USA

Previously, you said you were interested in seeing the progress on the implementation of the design I did in your drafting course last May. I'm attaching a scan of the design. It is a site in Kawela Plantation II on Molokai. Here is a link to an article my sis wrote on the "Implementing a Permaculture Design" course we held at the site last November.

Permaculture and Polyculture Consulting and Design

Permaculture and Polyculture Consulting and Design
Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
