Land Use Consultants
Diversified Systems, Permaculture, Edible Landscaping, Food Forests, Urban Orchards, Eco-villages
Whatever labels we attach to a particular type of land use the optimal solutions will show considerable diversity in its constituent biological elements, its functionality and its productivity. Here we offer assistance in creating functioning man-made environments that show similarity to healthy natural ecosystems and their resilience and buffering capacity, minimising the risk of failure.
Inspiration may be drawn from land use design systems like Permaculture, which looks for perennial solutions to the needs of humans and their supporting environments or habitats, where one particular function is supported by several elements and one particular element is supported by several functionalities. We have to find ways where we use all we have got at our disposal to create a functioning whole without making our grandchildren pay for it.
The temperate climate zones of New Zealand represent a wonderful matrix for a great variety of habitats. Yours may very well be one of them.
