Its time to go pro while doing great work for the planet.           Register for courses and build community solutions.

With the hold on most of our projects and postponement of international travel, we are opening live, online sessions for training. This is an important time to develop our skills hello design solutions so we can be ready when called to help Bring sustainable resilience to our communities. Food production is going to be an important activity for all communities this summer. Also we want to develop our landscapes with good design principles. 


Join us on-line or on-site for an intense, life and career changing event. Designs for resilience can be many acres or a homestead food forest.

Each site has its own design solution to deliver the needed food, fibers, medicines, biodiversity, and higher capacity for increased harvest each year. Each site design is site and client specific. The process delivers that!

Geodesic Dome Canopy for Drylands and Cold Climates

In dry climates this geodesic dome is partially covered with shade cloth acts as a temporary over story for establishing tree and shrub polycultures. The modular dome can be relocated for a new system as trees grow and create the micro-climate for their associated species. In cold climates it is used with poly plastic for seson extension.

 The span of the dome can reah more than 30 feet across depending on materials used. Single point fastening is preferred to ensure structural integrity and the least amount of torque stress on joints. This uses fewer parts and is faster to assemble.  An 11.8 foot radius dome (using 10 foot stock conduit)  can be built for lass than $200 in materials.
