Hosted by Permaculture Ottawa.


Join us for a hands-on workshop that will introduce you to the basic site mapping skills used in permaculture design. Participants will learn how to measure and map a site’s features, including elevation.  The workshop will be led by Douglas Barnes, an experienced permaculturist who is the president of EcoEdge Design Ltd. Douglas studied with permaculture founder Bill Mollison, and has worked on projects in Canada, Japan, India, and Australia.

This workshop will take place outdoors, so participants should take the weather into account and dress appropriately. Participants please bring your own paper, pens or pencils- and if you have one, a 100' tape measure will come in handy!  The workshop organizers will provide a set of workshop notes for the students, a surveyor's level, A-frame level, bunyip level, farmer's level, GPS, twine, stakes, a measuring wheel, and two 100' tape measures.
