About The Design Process
Barefoot Hippie Homesteading
Full Design & Layout Consultation
These services are quoted on travel time and distance and extensivity of design. Prices begin at $425.00
We explore your wants and needs and realistic goals. We set a date to meet in person, I send out a questionnaire that offers me a brief overview of what your family is looking to accomplish, we explore your wants and needs and realistic goals as well as your time commitments or restraints etc. I come to your home and survey the land, take photos and we meet for one - 2 hours to discuss ideas for medicinal and culinary herbs, kitchen or potager gardens, vegetable gardens for harvesting and storing, sunlight and bed placements, fruit tree guilds, composting, mulch and soil, water catch systems and drip lines, animal husbandry (including livestock, bees, chickens etc) we will talk about how to create the homestead that best suits the needs of your family. I will then create a simple computerized or hand drawn design. This along with a plant list will be emailed within 10-14 days. It will include any plants that I can obtain for you and the price list. There is no obligation to purchase.
Online live Consultation with design support
These sessions begin at $200.00 and are determined on extensivity of design and needs.
We meet for an online facetime or zoom style session for no less than one hour. You will submit property photos, completed questionnaire, address so land and ariel maps can be obtained. We review the wants and needs you have and if possible, you "walk" me though your property. I can offer support on all the general topics I provide in the in-person consult. You can either take notes or this can be transcribed to you. A printed or drawn garden design and plants list can be added. The idea is to offer a consultation to discuss placement of gardens and plants, companion plants, and needs although distance may be an issue.
1-2 Hours $165.00
This session is perfect for someone wanting new perspective to their growing space or beginner growers to learn more about edible landscaping, food forestry, companion planting, permaculture and organic growing. During our consult we will discuss a range of topics including:
