Permaculture Plan

In 2014-2015, Shades of Green PermaStormwaterculture Design, Inc., led by principal Brandy Hall, used Pine Lake as a ‘living lab’ for students in a permaculture certification course.  The students researched, explored and envisioned solutions to several of Pine Lake’s environmental concerns, including a community garden, creek remediation, design of McAllister Meadow, and the commercial district.
Although the City has not officially endorsed this plan as a whole, it has adopted some of the recommendations in making smart ecological decisions. You can see the final plan at
