‘What does this land have to give to me?’

According to Bill Mollison, this question leads to a better route when doing broadscale design.

Observation and research are used to identify resources and limitations of a site.  

Get maps of the property, records of wind, rainfall, flood, fire and species lists in the area. Ask around for problems about pests and how they deal with them.

‘Only by walking the site and observing it in every season can we discover its limitations and its resources…’

culled from Introduction to Permaculture, Bill Mollison with Reny Mia Slay
