Comprehensive Farm and Garden Planning

Whether the operation is a start-up or in transition to greater sustainability, we examine your property thoroughly and look for opportunities to create changes based on organic and permaculture whole systems design. For example, we will identify options for slowing down and holding the water that flows across the landscape. By making use of water where it falls, crop yields are increased and natural sources of potable and non-potable water are readily available. We also determine ways for holding precious topsoil where it is needed most by plants and animals.
