Project: LUSH Vancouver Permaculture Project
We've been working with Terra Genesis International and LUSH Cosmetics in Vancouver to re-imagine their 6000m2 industrial building and surrounding landscape with a permaculture lens.
We've done some permaculture design lunch and learns with their staff/management and facillitated two design charrettes to harvest feedback from users of the property.
We've also installed several features as part of a staff 'permablitz', including cordon apples, fig guilds and a blueberry bed.
Over time, we're going to turn this barren industrial landscape into a native bee paradise with hundreds of fruiting and flowering plants!
Staff Design Charrette
Charrette: any collaborative session in which a group of designers drafts a solution to a design problem.
Design charrettes bring people together to create a vision.
A Permablitz' to install part of the landscape with staff.
Concept Planning is an important tool to get multiple stakeholders on the same page and ready to move forward.
Design reports can help get the plan down on paper when approvals are needed.
