+ Vision- Group formation- Set Group Goals Set Group Goals – Bullet list of group-process goals and outlook including how the group will be making decisions.Sample: Taking responsibility for emotions by using “I” statements, expressing emotions when they arise in clear calm language, and sharing how these emotions came about. Communicating clearly about when you will be late, when you can’t keep a meeting, and if you have any miscommunications or questions. Having integrity inside of your commitments and being respectful of each other and each individuals ideas and inputs. Intentionally listening with patience to each person’s ideas surrounding the project. Empowering and encouraging each other in sharing and leadership communicated clearly through hugs and love .Conducting efficient meetings by developing an agenda and designating a meeting Facilitator, Scribe and Vibe-Checker.
+ Vision- Group formation-Personal Strengths Personal Strengths – Identify each group member’s skills. Sample: Artistic, Design-Oriented, Creative, Tech-Comfortable, Likes talking in front of people, Can talk to anyone, Knowledge in the retail/selling side of organic produce, Excited to learn
+ First Impressions- Record Neutral Observations, follow all senses, record them however fittingly pictures, sketches, notes.
+ First Impressions- use creative ways to absorb info from the land without analytical perspective
You are to produce a permaculture design foran area of the property which will be assigned. The overall design must include the following Important+ Functions: Water (irrigation, potable water, aquaculture, livestock, roof catchment, greywater, etc.) Soil Fertility (thermal composting, vermiculture, biomass production, etc.) Energy (connected to house design, electricity, pumping, etc.) Structures (passive solar orientation, materials, temperature regulation, etc.) Access (Pathways, roads, tracks, etc.) Food production (nuts, seeds, dairy, grains, vegetables, fruit, bee products, flowers, ) Cottage industry (a revenue-generating, value-added product from the land) Animal husbandry (at least worms and pigeons, if space chickens, ducks, goats, etc.) Other important functions (any other essential functions that arise through the design process)
+ Assessment- Holistic Site Analysis: the client/ land interview with an analytical perspective. Decipher or interpret needs of the client and gain insight into the site’s context from the assigned sheet. Use it to help catalogue observations and research. CLIENT PROFILE CLIENT NEEDS SITE OVERVIEW ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS SOCIAL SYSTEMS
+ Assessment- Protracted and Thoughtful observation
Base Map- existing infrastructure, name,+ date, location, North arrow, scale, legend
+ Flow and Sector Analysis combined on one overlay
+ Conceptual Planning SWOT Analysis-Create a list of Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities &Threats of the site. This reflects on previous analysis tools and highlights factors of development such as social and economic conditions. Local city market Constraints of a budget Catchment from a road Invasive species abound Strong coastal winds
+ Conceptual Planning Elements and Functions Mind Map- (Functions for header bubbles include: Water, Soil Fertility, Energy, Structures, Access, Food Production, Cottage Industry, Animal Husbandry, and Other Important Functions) Create a mind map that spells out how the important functions will be supported by many elements. It is a step that will allow you to envision the project as a whole and see how the connections bring redundancy. Food Production
+ Conceptual Planning- Schematic Design These are sketch orientated, big picture, pattern based thinking of how the development may unfold in an informal drawing. Should focus on the elements and function relationship- i.e- sheep need a pasture for food.
+ Write the list of elements on cards and use random assembly to see how elements will interconnect. A quick functional analysis of each element will help. Use arrows to indicate the matching of inputs and outputs. The mind map should help you to create the elements cards. Remember to lean on your PC principles list. •Time it •Not the final design •Keep it in the creative phase •Stay pattern based, not detail orientated.
+Make it a timedsession andmove through itquickly, thisstep is meantfor ideagenerationrather than longcontemplation
+ Master Planning Habitat/ Infrastructure Defining Specs List- – From the schematic design map, you should bring more detail to the design.Begin selecting the species that define the habitat or the specifics of infrastructure that you seek to create: For Example: Coppice woodlot (the bubble from the schematic): black locust hazel Willow OR Passive Solar, Natural Building Cob Structure Earthen Floors Rocket Mass Heater
+ Master Planning- Each Members Project Detail Each member takes on one aspect of the design (housing, earthworks, species list, establishment and succession of systems, etc.), which they will present to the class and briefly explain how at least 3 permaculture principles have been applied.
Visual aides greatly enhance this process of+ demonstrating the design in a limited amount of time. Create close-up drawings and/or other visuals for each specific Project Detail. Consider the use of differing views (side view, aerial view, floor plan, etc) to be sure to fully explain the design
Be creative and choose an area that strongly interests+ each design team member such as house floor plan & design, greywater system plan, composting program, cottage industry, rotational grazing plan, orchard development & succession, kitchen garden design, etc.
Remember that each member has only 5 minutes to present+ the assigned section of the design. Explain how the Detail Design integrates into the overall design first, then focus on the key design aspects that most effectively reinforce the principles and ethics of permaculture.
Remember to have a key, scale, and outline the key important+ elements thickly and darkly. Use the back-of-the-room-test with your visual both drawn and when or if transferred to PowerPoint to test its view-ability.
+ Create Final Design The Design- Explain at least 5 permaculture principles and how they fit into your design. Intermingle the Overall Design into the introduction, body, and conclusion of the presentation Create overlays or additional large pieces of paper to illustrate the new overall design, which includes all of the Important Functional Systems (Water, Soil Fertility, Energy, Structures, Access, Food Production, Cottage Industry, Animal Husbandry, and Other Important Functions).
+ Design Phase- Phases of Implementation Phases of implementation - (1 - 2 years, 3 - 5 years, 6 - 10 years, 10 - 25 year plan) A written document explaining how the design will evolve over time. Be sure to include the human element: Who is going to take care of this design after it is implemented? And how? This step will contribute to content for the 5-minute conclusion Beginning phases will focus on install while later phases will focus on harvest and management. See the evolution which ties to the social and economic sustainability of the site.
+ AN ABSOLUTE MUST Practicing beforehand greatly enhances the overall learning process and improves the quality of a presentation. Individual roles and responsibilities should be clearly defined long before the presentation takes place. Remember to give special consideration to timing and transitions between speakers to create a smooth and professional presentation MAKE SURE ALL VISUAL AIDS ARE VISIBLE, LEGIBLE, AND COMMUNICATE DESIGN BOTH PHYSICALLY AND ON POWERPOINT
+ Design Project Presentations - Come prepared to deliver a professional design to your client, peers and instructors. Feedback will be given on both the design and presentation. The presentation format is: Introduction (5 minutes) Review of the final design (5 minutes) Project Detail (5 minutes each person) Conclusion (5 minutes)
+ Final Presentations- aided by physical visuals and PowerPoint
