Greenbridge at Vital Tranformations Mauri Ora
Part of a regenerative lifestyle block design, this work focuses in on the productive garden that is the meeting space between the larger landscape and the home. Permaculture swales control stormwater runoff and transforms a force of erosion, into a nutrient delivery structure as an edible landscape in a food forest. This design illustrates well, a question we ask when designing landscapes – What is the highest ecological potential of this landscape, while meeting human needs?
