Beyond the Footprint – Integrating with the Outdoors
In this interactive workshop we will step out of the building footprint and find ways to integrate the outdoor space with the built environment for a seamless and sustainable homeowner experience. We will explore some of the broadest patterns for utilizing sun and shade, creating windbreaks, & rainwater harvesting. And we will discuss many regenerative landscape features and retrofits; from where to place a garden to attached greenhouses, and from greywater irrigation to food forests and more!
