Helping Your Garden, Homestead or Farm Succeed
We synthesize ecological design, permaculture, keyline design, edible landscaping and regenerative agriculture to design gardens, homesteads, and farms that build soil fertility, catch and store water, produce healthy crops and improve your quality of life.
Experience & Practice
As farmers, gardeners, and homesteaders we bring our practical and hard-won experience to minimize learning curves and maximize positive outcomes.
Holistic design is rooted in systems thinking. We help you see the interconnection of all elements to maximize and harmonize their relationships for the best results.
We pinpoint the weakest link in any system, identifying the most suitable and cost-effective solution to get your project beyond limiting factors.
Success by Design
We harness the patterns of nature to design and create regenerative and resilient farms, gardens, and homesteads that:
- build soil fertility
- improve the carbon and nutirent cycles
- catch and store rainwater
- improve nutrient-density
- reduce pest and disease pressure
- increase human and ecological health
- increase biological diversity
- create diverse habitats
- improve profitability
Over a Decade of Regeneration
We’ve been living and breathing ecological design and regenerative agriculture since 2008—working across the midwest, northeast and Mid-Atlantic—to synthesize the best principles and practices for regenerating ecosystem and human health.
Farm & Homestead
We live and work from the northwest corner of Mountain Run Farm. We manage several acres of cider apples, herb and vegetable gardens, food forests, fruit and berry plantings, hedges, woodlots, composting systems, pasture raised eggs and more.
