A Homestead Surrounded in Nature's Abundance

 

In a SouthWoods Homestead Design humans are the stewards, the primary producer/consumer cycling nutrients through the property. Human needs are met while fulfilling the needs of all other life, creating natural capital and wealth for future generations.

The sustainable homestead solutions are as simple as clothes lines or as complex as geothermal heating. Solutions start with small livestock or thousnad year nut trees. Each system is integrated into the next. Like a forest, self-sustaining, resilient, and abundant.



Prior to any design work we use an extensive site assessment workbook with the land owners to help develop their visions and golas. This is available via the Course Page.



Design projects have expanded and taken the lead in our focus. SouthWoods participates in practicum training where invited and has foregone courses on-site. Video Presentations:  Ecological Design Strategy, Following Natures Patterns, Exceptions to our Understanding, Competitive Exclusion, Companion and Nurse Plants, managing disturbance, groundcovers, Micr-climates and Mushrooms, Banker Plants, Tasty Ground Covers, Plant Systems, Micro-Climate Peaches.
