Creative Brief

The Rahma Clinic is a new resource for Syracuse providing free health care services at their 3100 South Salina St. location. An important part of health is nutrition and healthy eating, and it is a well known fact that the Southside of Syracuse currently does not have a grocery store providing fresh produce and healthy food choices.  Young and old are faced with an overabundance of pre-packaged sugar laden snacks and processed “foods”. More healthy food options are needed for Southside residents and visitors.

Creative Task and Criteria

Create a design for a free harvest “Snack Garden” at the Rahma Clinic, based upon an edible forest garden model that demonstrates the following 5 task criteria:
I. Perennial “Snacking”

    * Demonstrate an Understanding of Proper Growing and Site Conditions

    * Feature primarily perennial species that are suited to the Syracuse biosystem

    * Require minimal maintenance

    * Produce food for continuous seasonal harvest that can be “eaten from the vine” - or snacked on raw from the garden.

II. Demonstrate Permaculture Ethics

    * Earthcare, Peoplecare, Fairshare

III. Follow Permaculture and Edible Forest Garden Principles

    * Permaculture is an ecological design system that looks to nature for inspiration to create productive and resilient design solutions. For nutshell descriptions of the principles visit

    * Multi-Story and Multi-Product Functionality and Design.  For more information about edible forest gardening visit

IV. Construction Criteria and Specifications

    * Designs must be easily implemented by community volunteers.

    * Site specifications (location, square footage, shape, aerial photograph, current vegetation) are available for viewing at

    * Material costs should be within a reasonable amount for a grassroots and volunteer driven task, using donated materials and funds.

V. Additional Aspects

    * Originality, Uniqueness, and Aesthetics; Creation of a compelling design story

    * Use of Local, Repurposed and Natural Materials


The Community Permaculture Design Open is a project of The Alchemical Nursery, intended to bring free and innovative Permaculture design to the needs of regional socio-economic and community development. The Design Open also gives an opportunity to Permaculturists, landscape designers, and sustainable agriculture practitioners to showcase their work.
