Design is the at the core of permaculture and at the core of our work. Peacetree Permaculture practices what we call really sensitive design — that is, design which is finely tuned to the particularities of a given site — climate, soil, rainfall, original vegetation communities, household water use and the resource requirements of any proposed plants, animals or structures. We specialise in really sensitive design for the South West of Western Australia.
Peacetree Permaculture is available for consultation on sustainability related projects. We specialise in ecologically sensitive solutions to the provision of human needs — whether physical or social — and in consultative design processes. We have significant experience in Western Australia’s growing community garden sector in addition to having worked with both non-profit and government organisations to develop sustainability design solutions and programs.
We have a very particular approach to creating and nurturing the systems we design or work with. For biological elements of the system, we do our best to ensure that they flourish. We provide the best plants and animals and the best soil ammendments and plant feeds that are available. If there is the time, we prefer to allow soil to grow naturally over several years and we provide a mix of soil conditioning plants and biological ammendments like compost teas to assist natural processes.
We work very closely with our clients and do all we can to keep our work sites safe and tidy while working. When we’re finished, we leave sites looking great.
