CREATE a regenerative system.

Giggling Chi Tree loves supporting communities, non profit organizations and solutionaries in creating ethical, long lasting and abundant systems that support the individual and the whole. I happily offer guidance on your Permaculture project with priority given to community driven projects.

Giggling Chi Tree can help you with Consultations on:

  • Land based designs for communities and neighbourhoods.
  • Organizational Structures Design including governance, programming, strategic planning and community development.
  • Curriculum and program development for organizations, businesses and schools.

It is always recommended to consider taking a Permaculture Design Certificate Course to best support you in your project needs, but if you are looking for additional support on a new or existing project, I am happy to help!  If you are considering moving forward to get a Permaculture Design, a consultation is the best place to start.

Kym Chi, the principal designer for Giggling Chi Tree comes with a wealth of experience on community development.  To learn more about her experience, please see her CV.


Consultations include:

  • a pre – visit questionnaire
  • site visit
  • consultation report

Consultations start at $200 for an average residential lot. Cost will vary depending on the project. Please contact for a quote. If the consultation requires travel, expenses will be included in your quote.

Giggling Chi Tree believes in the strength of collaboration with the community, if Kym Chi feels she is not the right consultant for you, she will happily direct you to another Permaculture Consultant who will best suit your needs.


Please note that Kym Chi primarily offers consults and rarely takes on the Design and Implementation phases of projects.  If you are hoping to have someone take on this aspect of your project for you, Kym will happily recommend practitioners for you to contact.

In special circumstances, Kym Chi may take on the design and/ or installation of a project.  In these cases, she enjoys collaborating  with other skilled contractors to make your plan a reality.

Contact to discuss your project.
