About James Cheney

I live in Southeast Idaho. I graduated with my degree in Mechanical Engineering. My experience is in developing hydroelectric power plants. This experience has included site surveying, environmental permitting, and sizing and designing hydroelectric power plants.

I first learned about Permaculture from Jack Spirko at The Survival Podcast. Through his instruction and his involvement with Geoff Lawton, I came to learn and implement more and more of the principles and ethics of Permaculture. When Geoff Lawton opened the online PDC Course, I jumped at the opportunity and took the course.

I currently have a project from my Permaculture Design Course that I’ll be implementing onsite in December. I have two more design projects coming up this winter.

With my engineering background, I was able to implement 3d modeling into a landscape with all of the property features. Having a 3d model helps immensely to portray the design to the client.

I am available for design consulting work as well as assisting other Permaculture designers in creating 3d models and videos for themselves and their clients.

Examples of my services can be found on the following links:
