Greetings fellow permies. I recently purchased a few acres in Fallbrook, CA with about 2 acres of dead avocado grove. I have already removed most of the tree stumps and put in access roads. There are still a dozen avo trees plus several nice oak trees. Other than that, I have a ton of freshly bulldozed earth waiting to be filled with swales, terraces, hugelbeetes, etc.
I am feeling intimidated about starting, since shaping the land correctly is so important to get right the first time; I can't really do it over once I put trees in the ground. Can anyone recommend a permaculture design consultant in southern California? I have access to a bulldozer and other heavy euqipment to get the job done. I just want someone to come in and advise me on the earth shaping, plant guild design, integration with livestock, and water management. One important requirement is that I want to hire someone who can show me an example of at least two successful projects in my area.
