Permaculture Design

Permaculture Design for The Community School, Camden, Maine

Permaculture is a design system focused on creating sustainable human habitats modeled on natural, ecological patterns and processes. A permaculture design may include gardens, green building, alternative energy, water harvesting, and even personal and community growth strategies, when appropriate.

Permacultureʼs core principals include care of the earth, care of the people, and return of the excess to both.

Conscious Elements Permaculture is the permaculture design and consultation business of Singing Nettle Farm. We offer regenerative design for residential, community, non-profit, farm, and business clients. Past projects have included edible schoolyards, perennial food forest design and implementation, and ecological rehabilitation. Our design process works with homeowners and community members to create their own vision of ecological paradise. We are also available for public talks and workshops at your school or community center.
