The landscape assessment is a at the root of any landscape design and regeneration. With the immense amount of information that comes from learning about permaculture or landscape design, it can often be difficult to know where to start or even the right questions to ask. This online course will help guide you in the appropriate direction to start your data mining processes that give you that foundation, upon which you can create your design and plan for your landscape.
The last module of this course opens up the online landscape assessment tool which, like this course, will guide you step-by-step through the proper landscape assessment and also provide a printable pdf once finished. This tool eliminates that feeling of being overwhelmed and unprepared for doing anything major on your landscape. Feel confident having the tools and knowledge to make the change you’ve always wanted after taking this course.

Nicholas has prepared an incredible product in this online tool and additional teaching videos. Anyone working in the permaculture space, but especially a beginner in need of the extra structure and guidance, can use this tool to help organize, prepare, and present site assessment data quickly and easily. Additionally, the resulting report created by following all the steps and filling in all the data would make a follow up Permaculture Design Presentation much faster and easier to complete than doing so from loosely compiled notes. Going far beyond the structured guidance and ease of use, this tool presents a number of resource links which are quite valuable in their own right. The number of resources for climate and map data alone represent a treasure trove of sources for anyone who has had trouble sourcing such data on their own and there are many, many more. I have, and will continue to highly recommend this product and the larger body of work from schoolofpermaculture.com
More than worth the investment
I just finished the course. Nicholas conveyed clear precise information. I did not get bogged down in fluff. My time is limited, but was well spent on this course. Though, at this point, my interest rests is turning an old tobacco farm into regenerated land, I greatly value everything I learned! He left me anxious for the morning, so I can begin to apply even a portion of the the information he shared. Thank you!
Outstanding amount of essential instruction!
WOW! My brain is on overload right now!! What an amazing amount of information you have given through this course. Presenting it in small outlined increments made it less overwhelming. I now have a much better understanding of the factors affecting success or failure, and how researching each category can enable a design that works with the land, not against it. Thank you so much for making these tools available!
Worth the money!
It gave me something constructive to do here in Houston during all the rain. Great job!
The information provided with this material is phenomenal. Nichloas puts all of the material to make sound decisions at your fingertips throughout this class. With this material you will have the tools to understand and properly identify factors of landscape assessment. Many of the assessments that are taught in this course would cost much more than the price of the course if you were to pay someone else to provide the service. If you are wanting to identify the aspects of your own property, or begin consulting, this is the course that you need.
