This listing is for Chapter 6 only from the full ebook which can be found HERE


Chapter 6 - 'Reading the Land'

At some point in the process, you move beyond passive observation and curious listening to a dedicated data-gathering phase. I like to call this “gathering evidence.” This is when you document all the features of the site in earnest. Vegetation types, microclimate, animal species, topography, legal constraints, water sources, natural history, social history, threats of natural disaster, and so on. The following sections will touch on all these layers of the existing landscape, what you should be looking for, and how to research, monitor, and document them.





Chapter 6 includes:

  • Water Patterns
  • Springs and Seeps
  • Low Lying Areas, Bog, Wetlands
  • Look for Water in the Driest Time of Year
  • Vegetation
  • Animal Indicators
  • Natural History
  • Know Your Geology
  • Site Constraints
  • On-site Resources
  • In Field Soil Tests
  • Soil Textures Come in Many Combinations
  • Observing the Soil Profile
  • Landforms Microclimate
  • Wind Patterns Sun Orientation Thermal Mass Fog
  • Infiltration Rate Test


  • Format: PDF
    No. of pages: 18

    I guess for all of these Early Bird listings in the thread, this is just to build interest?  Every one I've went to is to a pay link.  I guess we'll get the download version at a later point?  Thanks.

    Yes, that is correct. It will be free for everyone who backed the Kickstarter by Sept 22 at 2pm MT,  a few weeks after the campaign ends.
