This map is a broader part of my "Six Sisters Garden" project, a soon-to-be urban community space made for some deserving families.  

I drew this map to:
  • Help me determine appropriate numbers, sizes, and locations for plants, furniture, and other garden elements.
  • Rapidly prototype new design layouts and concepts, and then convey them directly to the clients.
  • Help communicate workshop station setup locations to other volunteers for an Earth Day workshop event I'm leading.

  • My map was originally drawn on a scrap bit of cardboard using information from Google Earth, as well as on-the-ground measurements and basic mensuration off of photos (e.g. counting floor tiles or fence notches from 360 photo-spheres in order to determine area or heights without having to take measurements).  Initially, I made paper cutouts to help think about layouts.  Then, I uploaded the map to Google Slides to fill in more details and share with the rest of my workshop team.

    Here's my map of my favorite foraging park. I'm going to share it with my naturalist buddies, and with you!



    Some of the spots listed here are
  • Weird structure
  • Raspberry patches 1-4
  • Violet patch
  • The pit
  • Gooseberry patch
  • Elm patch
  • Elderberry patch
  • Dryad's Saddle Grove
  • Ostrich fern patch
  • Black Walnut grove
  • Swampy Zone
  • Morel Patch
  • Willow Patch

  • and of course, the construction zone

    Here's a pic of the weird structure. seems like someone took a tarp and sticks and made a hangout area.  I keep my distance, who knows what's inside.


    The accursed construction zone.


    Black walnut grove. There are 5-10 black walnut trees here that are the perfect height for collecting the nutsr.


    Ostrich fern patch- these are almost four feet tall.

    I've been contemplating offering a yard and garden tour to local neighbors and friends that have shown a lot of interest in either permaculture or even just growing their own food or flowers, or how to make their backyard more "natural" and encourage birds, wildlife, etc.  

    This BB encouraged me to make something of a "self guided" backyard map and key.  It doesn't show everything there is to see in my small yard, but it highlights some of the main features and how they are laid out.  

    Digital map done in simple paint program, with a key referencing the numbered points of interest:
