June Meeting

Practice Design Principles - Systems & Elements Connections...Brainstorming Session?

Author: Siemen Family Farms, Inc.
We get to host our next group meeting at Siemen Family Farms (aka Mont Lamm Events/Belgians) off 395 just North of Deer Park. We'll be taking a look at practicing design by working with systems and elements.  What does that mean? I have a lot of elements, a few systems, and A LOT of yields to be achieved and I need help thinking about them.  I figure my brain is one element among all of ours and I could really use the fresh eyes on the ground to help me think about the space use and yields for NOW and the FUTURE.
