Plant Resources for Solano County

Sustainable Solano Seed Plot Definition

The design concept of the Solano Sustainable Landscaping Initiative is based on a standard model plot of a permaculture food forest called “Seed Plot”. We hired a professional permaculture designer to develop a model plot based on plants that thrive in the Bay Area, native or well-adopted to Mediterranean climate (resulting in moderate water use), high-yield and multiple functions of each plant to ensure creation of a vigorous healthy ecosystem providing food, supporting natural habitat and building up soil.
