By establishing a parcel-wide permaculture design that integrates solar and visual sectors, flow patterns, and bioregional flora and fauna we are able to meet the client-focused goals with the least amount of ecological and economic impacts.
Transforming suburban landscapes into thriving, low-maintenance gardens based on integrated permaculture design principles.
We have many years of experience in the design, permitting and implementation of environmental projects.
The integration of all farming systems (soil, water, agriculture, livestock and habitat) are the keys to establishing a regenerative farm design.
We use real-time aerial imagery to create overlays which brings the design to life. This service is also available for real estate and other planning needs.
Since the passing of the Rainwater Catchment Act of 2013 High Tide has been designing and teaching about rainwater catchment systems. 1,000 square feet of catchment surface has the potential to capture 600-gallons of water for every 1-inch of precipitation. Our integrated and passive systems will have you catching, storing and using rainwater in no time!
Using a mature forest matrix as a model we design and implement perennial food systems in suburban settings. Once established there is no need for supplemental irrigation or fertilization.
Intensive agricultural systems fragment existing natural systems and the functions they provide. This fragmentation creates an increase in pest populations and thus an increase in maintenance. This can lead to low agricultural yields, increased operations cost and an increase in the use of pesticides. Islands of Refugia provide habitat for beneficial insects, birds and micro-organisms which will increase yields and eliminate the need for pesticides.
