Wouldn’t it be magical if all backyards

were lush edible ecosystems teeming with food?

Together we have over 12 years combined professional experience designing, establishing, and producing FOOD from whole system food forests. 

As certified Permaculture Design Consultants, we specialize in designing and planting bio diverse Food Forests and edible landscapes. We were certified in 2013 by the esteemed  Toby Hemenway, author of the essential permaculture book Gaia’s Garden. It was this book that first taught us this time-tested way of growing food through careful observation of patterns, and working with nature to achieve abundant yields of plants: edible, useful, medicinal + more!

Our portfolio includes small city backyards and rural properties ranging from 1-8 acres.
