At Green Dragon we offer Permaculture consulting services that help you design your home and garden holistically and sustainably. Taking into account water management systems, soil fertility and utilizing built structures we’ll work with you to create a design that treats the earth kindly and gives you the outcome you’re looking for.
What is Permaculture?
In a nutshell Permaculture is a design methodology that creates sustainable systems. Whether on your balcony, in your backyard or in your community Permaculture applies ecological principals to mimic natural ecosystems in order to propagate the health and well being of people and planet. Looking at systems broadly allows us to see the interrelationship, for example, between the water run-off from your roof, the ability to harvest that water and the potential to grow healthy plants with that water.

What We Do
We’ll sit down and discuss your vision for your balcony, backyard or porch (no space is too small) and determine your desired outcomes and overall vision. Next we’ll observe your space, how much rain, how much sun, how much room etc. to determine appropriate methods and means to achieve your goals. We’ll follow up our tour of your property with a set of recommendations that you’ll receive a week or two after our initial visit. We’ll also work with you on how to implement our recommendations and put them into practice.
Why it Matters
Permaculture can have a large impact in urban areas in many ways. From reducing water runoff to creating more opportunities for energy efficiency in houses, techniques and principles of Permaculture design can be applied thus putting into practice our values of respect for the earth and people.
