About: Edible Landscape Design
Organic Motion integrates 'permaculture' design techniques, principles and ethics into each landscape. Edible Landscape Design may be new terminology for some, but it is what we live, breath and bring by way of services and products to our clients. Our tropical climate lends fruitful possibilities of colour, texture and abundance and we hope to share our passion knowledge and skills for smart design to you.
We value the power of observation, as it is fundamental in understanding site orientation, energy flow and zoning - ensuring the crEATion of not just sustainable, but thriving landscapes. With the intention to design with holistic living solutions that bring you a maximum return for minimal input, our services and products encompass energy efficiency and are aesthetically impressive.
Our philosophy is to communicate the art and science of efficient natural systems, by teaching course/workshops and by illustrating professional designs that innovate the way we interact with urban and acreage spaces, reflecting the beauty of nature and crEATing abundant edible landscapes.
A garden should not only be aesthetically pleasing but also practical to maintain, so designing with this consideration at heart, we bring you the beauty and abundance in an edible package. Appropriate plant selection and placement of the right species is key to a great design, as much as considering how your garden will be managed over time for efficiency, which is why we observe the site first and plan the conceptual design in zones.
Each zoned section incorporates your everyday energy use, landscape potential and food requirements (especially tastebuds!). Elements of observation we consider and work with are: climate, sun and shade aspects, soil type and condition, water catchment/access, air flow and privacy or views requirements.
What is Permaculture?
What is Permaculture?
Permaculture is a design science; a system which helps integrate people (and their needs, habits, skills, desires, money and time) and place (the physical limitations and potentials of a site). Ecologically harmonious systems providing a good portion of the needs for people (with things like water, vegetables, fruit, grains, eggs, meat etc). Permaculture systems work more like natural systems such as forests (polyculture) than industrial agriculture (monoculture), requiring no artificial inputs and producing no waste - for organic and energy efficient yields!
