HANDS-ON GARDEN COACHING (Sliding Scale Fee: $35 – $75 / hr)
The hands-on coaching sessions are best described as a series of one-on-one gardening workshops. You can choose to work side-by-side with Riley, or simply observe and ask questions as she applies specific Permaculture techniques to your property.
The first step is a 60 minute consultation (with the same sliding scale fee) to assess your space and determine your goals and the specific skills you would like to develop. The duration and frequency of the sessions will vary depending on your specific goals, though 60 minutes once a week is recommended to start.
60 MINUTE DESIGN CONSULTATION: (Sliding Scale Fee: $35 – $75 / hr)
The intention of the consult is to arm YOU with the tools and knowledge to map out your own Permaculture design.
Riley walks the property with the owner, assessing the land and asking questions to determine what Permaculture techniques & design strategies would be most appropriate.
This is a verbal assessment. –You will be introduced to Permaculture design principles, values, and ethics; recommendations & rough sketches will be given when appropriate.
* For an additional $20 you will receive a few cuttings and/or seeds of a food crop that is currently in season, a resource list, and a soil building guide.
60 MINUTE DESIGN FOLLOW-UPS: (Sliding Scale Fee: $35 – $75 / hr)
Once you have your Permaculure design mapped out, Riley will meet back up with you to look it over and discuss any recommended changes and/or additions.
Once again, this is a verbal assessment with rough sketches and notes when appropriate. –You may schedule as many follow-ups as you would like.
(Additional travel fees may apply for those outside Saint Petersburg & Gulfport, Florida)
