Living Systems Design is a Permaculture and whole systems design, planning and educational training group dedicated to the creation of unique productive environments that meet the needs of humans while restoring abundance, health, and diversity to the landscapes we occupy.  Permaculture can be defined as an ecological design system for the creation of regenerative human habitats.

We use Permaculture principles and practices to create landscapes that are not only beautiful, but also functional, conserving energy, water, and resources while producing abundant yields of food and natural resources for all.  Permaculture design also offers a wonderful approach to the creation of creative outdoor learning environments for all ages.

    “I could have sat with Chuck up on our hillside and talked for days, such was the extent of his knowledge. In fact, I only planned to hire him for 2 hrs, but I was learning so much I did not let him leave.
    I would highly recommend Chuck for any scale consulting job you might be considering. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable, amiable, and attentive to our needs goals while also suggesting things we had not thought about.”
