No. This is Ark based support and guidance. Ecosystem restoration, not gardening. Consider becoming a guardian, not a gardener and come aboard the Ark project!
So, will I end up with a design for my land?
No, this is advice and guidance only.
If you want a detailed ark design, you can email Mary’s team and find out whether she will be interested. She only takes on a very small amount of projects every year.
Once you book the session, Mary will email you with all the details.
Here are some general ideas though:
How many photos should I take?
Just enough to cover the areas you need to discuss. If it is a small Ark , a few photos of each area from different angles will help a lot. Too many of each area will waste time, be selective and sort through your photos well before sending them on to Mary. Any videos should be shorter than 1 minute and concise.
How will I send the photos and Videos to Mary?
Mary will ask you to use ‘WeTransfer’, a free service which allows you to send photos and videos without making an account.
I can’t take videos. Does it matter?
No, as long as there is a pin/post code and a decent descriptive selection of photos, it will be ok.
The ‘We are the Ark’ website contains a vast treasure of free guidance including a huge amount of links and resources. Also Marys book is a great guidance which goes more in-depth and if you request it, your local library will order it in for free, if you can’t manage to invest in it right now.
The ‘We are the Ark’ Facebook group is a wonderful source of advice from other Arkevists around the world who are very willing to support each other in their Arking activities.
Once an Ark Guidance Session is booked, there are no refunds.
However, it is possible to reschedule an Ark Guidance Session, as long as you cancel at least 24 hours in advance.
