Hello and welcome. I am very happy to have you here in the forums.

My question is, does the book go into some detail for the beginning steps toward creating a whole system ecosystem? With some of the information I am gathering or some of the books I read I find it difficult to translate the information into a process. I realize not everyone's step 1 will be the same. Or are there multiple entry points? As in, there could be many steps 1s.

Hope my question is understandable.

Ben's book

The Resilient Farm and Homestead: An Innovative Permaculture and Whole Systems Design Approach

covers a broad array of homestead design concepts.

The workshop Advanced Farm & Homestead Design will break the design process into a specific and actionable framework. Once a site is acquired, everyone's Step 1 SHOULD be the same if the goals are known and a cohesive design is desired.

We'll be covering Steps 1-10(awesomeness achieved) in-depth at the workshop
