Transcript of Permaculture Design Project

A PERMACULTURE DESIGN PROJECT:
Huntington Beach High School Garden
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
MAP OF SITE
In 2009, a dedicated teacher named
Greg Goran
For a year he and his team of students
Transforming a forgotten, 3600 sq. foot piece of land
Huntington Beach
High
School
of rusted equipment and native weeds...
Huntington Beach High
School's
The Ecology
Center
While the garden was praised well by the school and members of the community,
Greg knew that there were a few elements overlooked in the initial design of the project.
helped start a project
to build the first
organic garden at
So he decided to search around for resources and tips about how to develop the space as well as more help to get it done...
Luckily he found a place called...
Hmmm... there is something more I need here....
-but what?
It was at the Ecology Center that Greg learned
about the importance of
permaculture concepts
and teamed up with...
dug,
planted,
and worked
together...
Into an interactive classroom to learn and grow together!
Together, they began a project to turn
garden
into
a local,
regional,
and possibly
model
global
that shows how a school
can be apart of
positive change
in the community
First, like in any design process,
they began to map the site

PHASE 3:
A NEW MODEL & RIPPLE EFFECT
Convert ABS Energy Plant and Water Treatment Plant into net-zero energy designs.
Locate “edge-zones” for bee hives and other zone 5 design elements that support the city as a whole.
Plant food producing and energy efficient trees in all city parks with permaculture design techniques.
Further extend bicycle lanes and community supported bicycle transportation.

WE BELIEVE that the design sites could create
an initial network to support and promote their
valuable role as the key exhibit sites for sustainability solutions in their community. This could be done by creating a network of websites and social media which could be supported by the students at each campus.
"What permaculturists are doing is the most important activity
that any group is doing on the planet. We don't know what details of a truly sustainable future are going to be like, but we need options, we need people experimenting in all kinds of ways and permaculturists are one of the critical gangs that are doing that."

- Dr. David Suzuki, geneticist, broadcaster and international environmental advocate

LET'S DO THIS GANG!
"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete."
- Buckminster Fuller
