The Walkers Landscape is extremely complex, with just over 300 acres of land rising up majestically from the north eastern shore of Barbados. Landforms include steep sand dunes, intact forest, sand dunes, ponds, clay hills, sandstone cliffs, wetlands, and much more. In order to manage this complexity, Terra Genesis has created an interactive map that uses existing landscape features and micro-climates to separate the land into manageable-sized plots that can be planted, maintained and monitored in a systematic fashion. This reductionary analysis is valuable for project management and had to be paired with landscape scale design as well as permaculture patterns to maintain connectivity, continuity and coherence throughout the design. This map allows users to click on any plot and understand the full permaculture analysis as well as the regeneration goals and important permaculture patterns that are being implemented.
The map below is interactive with different layers and links to the information pages of the 52 different planting plots. We invite you to explore and discover the Permaculture Design guiding this radical transformation.
