More About Our CSA Reports

CoFo is guided by permaculture ethics and principles, and central to the permaculture design process is understanding what is already happening with a site before considering a design. Analyzing "sectors" - a permaculture concept that refers to external, uncontrollable elements like climate, ecology, hydrology, topography, and society - allows us to gain this understanding, and enables better integration and capitalization of these elements in order to meet the desired goals of a client's property. (To learn more about the permaculture approach, see pgs. 1-2 in the CSA). CoFo's CSA report utilizes a number of geological data-gathering websites and software programs to compile important information about the below "sectors" that affect a client's property. It empowers both the consultants and clients with the information they need to approach site design in an ecologically-friendly and efficient way that works with, rather than against, nature. 

Sector data featured in the CSA includes:  
    • Watershed Maps (pgs. 3-4) - shows the "mini" and larger watersheds a client's property sits within. 
    • Site Topography (pg. 5) - shows the contour lines and slope of a client's property.
    • Soil (pg. 6) - shows the soil series type(s) present on a client's property, which affect the soil's organic matter (OM), clay & sand content, percolation rate, and pH. 
    • Wind (pg. 7) - shows the direction and speed of prevailing summer and winter winds.
    • Annual Temperatures & Precipitation (pg. 8) - shows annual and monthly averages for high and low temperatures, as well as annual precipitation.
    • Sun Angles (pg. 9) - shows the angle of the sunrise & sunset on the shortest (winter solstice) and longest (summer solstice) days of the year.
