I tried posting this in the resource forum to no avail, so I'll try this here:
I'm looking for a permaculture design consult on my newly-acquired, 5 acres. The property is in Shasta county, forested, and currently has a mobile home which will serve as domicile for the fam & I whilst we build a log cabin and barn.
I am specifically looking for help with structure placement and water harvesting design (i.e. swales, hugel beds, pond(s),etc.) I'd also like GENERAL guidelines for prep & plant/tree selection. I do NOT expect step by step instructions on how to build the ideal homestead - just some help to get the most out of what we have.
I'm not made of money, but I'm willing to pay a fair price fo good advice. Also, I'd prefer someone who is familiar with the southern Cascades or similar climate & environment.
Please respond to this thread or shoot me a message and I'll contact you directly.
