This 60-minute online consultation is an opportunity to connect with Megan on a range of subjects. Whether you’re looking to start a garden and aren’t sure where to begin, or wondering how to transition an existing system toward regenerative practices, Megan is looking forward to being of service to you and your place.
Online Session Topics:
A site assessment is the perfect way to gain a deeper understanding and relationship with the land you live on. Assessments are available for both personal and community lots. Megan specializes in community gardens and loves bringing them to life for a neighborhood to gather, learn, and grow.
The session will begin with a plant walk to identify existing plants. You’ll learn valuable information on edible & medicinal “weeds” already growing on your site and useful wild plants present in your system. You’ll then learn about sectors coming into your site. Soil conditions are assessed and suggestions will be provided for regenerative soil building strategies on-site. Hydrology is then assessed and suggestions are provided for catching and storing water. Important overall patterns of your land are discussed – sunlight, wind, and significant existing sectors.
You will have the opportunity to share your vision and desired yields for your space. Yields are what you want to get out of a site, from establishing food security, creating habitat for wildlife, to connecting with the living world. Have fun with this part of the site assessment, “yields are only limited by your imagination” – Bill Mollison.
Your site assessment concludes with preliminary suggestions and ideas for your space provided by Megan. With a greater understanding of the land and vision, a detailed design can now be created of the client to create a living system garden.
Once a site assessment has been completed, a consulting relationship begins and Megan will prepare a detailed design for you to transform your land into a living system garden.
Detailed Design & Consulting includes:
Megan’s ideal client is one who wants to actively participate in the process of creating and caring for a garden. She strongly believes that the many gifts to be received from a garden come from actually being in it and learning from it. There are many services you can hire to simply install a landscape for you, but the invaluable gift of growing is something hard to find.
