22.   The Design- An accurate, to-scale drawing of your final design.  Determine the exact size, shape and location of the patches and elements that you laid out in your schematic design.  Demonstrate or explain five permaculture principles or more and how they fit into your design

  • as several overlays or another new big piece of paper, include the following new design systems- Water supply, roads, paths, structures, vegetation, animal systems,….

23.   Patch Design- Each member takes on one deailed aspect of the design, which they will research and present (housing, earthworks, species list, establishment and succession of systems etc.)

  • Have close-up drawings and/or other visuals from your specific detail.

Each member has 5 minutes to present their section of the design.  Visuals greatly aid this process of demonstrating your design in a limited amount of time.

Intermingle the Design into your introduction, body, and conclusion of your presentation.

24.   Species Master List- This is a list of all the plant species that you plan to use in your design. Your habitat-defining species from the schematic phase will help you determine which plants are compatible with each of those habitats.

25.    Phases of implementation (1 – 2 years, 3 – 5 years, 6 – 10 years, 10 – 25 year plan)

  • A written document explaining how the design will evolve.
  • -This might include planting strategies for a sequential installation, succession pathways for different patches, the evolution of construction projects, etc.
  • -It should definitely include the human element of your guilds. Who is going to take care of this design after it is implemented?

26.   Evaluation Plan- Briefly describe how evaluation will be conducted on your site and how this might play into its evolution.

Your plans for implementation and evaluation are a part of the conclusion of your presentation.
27.    Practice Presentations

This greatly enhances the overall learning process and improves the quality of a presentation.  Timing is worked out and transitions between speakers smoothed and roles defined for the presentation.

28.   Design Project Presentations- come dressed appropriately for delivering a professional design to your client and your peers and instructors.  Feedback will be given on both the design and presentation itself.
