WHAT WE DO
POSITIVE ENERGY OUTPUT
At Wholistik, we work closely with clients to design a sustainable system that fits their needs. This process starts with an in depth interview assessing the clients short term and long term goals.
Our approach is to apply whole systems thinking combined with the three main permaculture ethics: People Care, Earth Care, Create Surplus to create a powerful design.
We work to design strong ecosystems with lots of connections to ensure that the energy yield is maximized for you and the environment's well-being.
