This is our first attempt to have an online field day. Updated details are here:

Permaculture Design Field Day - Jan - Online and in own field/site sections
15Natural Resource Flow18Existing features 19SWOC20Risk Analysis
There are 3 main reasons to be working together today. Firstly, you, as the client gets input for your design. Secondly, you get to work as a design team and build your own design skills. Thirdly, our upcoming textbook called the Field Guide to Permaculture Design, gets some more chapters tested.
Today we will explore 4 chapters of the Field Guide to Permaculture Design. In total there are 50 Steps. You can see all the steps here: The reason why we are doing these 4 chapters is because the client has already considered the ethics behind her drive to create a design. She, and her family (the stakeholders of the design) are ready to move to the next step.
What to do
Please read each chapter, set for todays workshop ready to discuss the task with the team and together we will complete the worksheet.
