Free Permaculture Design Software

In Tools on December 23, 2009 at 9:46 pm

I’m currently working on a permaculture design for Fresh Roots Farm in Atlanta. Here is a list of the free software I plan on using to publish my designs:

  1. Google SketchUp, for complicated subsystem designs (i.e. indoor greywater treatment system)
  2. Autodesk Project Cooper, for basemap and sector/zone overlays
  3. cropplanning, an open source software for managing plants
  1. Just in case anyone is interested-I use Adobe Illustrator and some photoshop for my designs-they work great-especially the layer tool in Illustrator. I used it because I was trained in it before I got into permaculture, mostly.
