Our Work

We discover and translate the interwoven stories of connection between people and place through an adaptive, living & regenerative design process that shifts our awareness towards relation.

Our services integrate consulting, Permaculture design & planning, project implementation, drafting, and promotion for individuals, families, farms, communities and organizations.

Gathering ongoing feedback throughout this work, we welcome nature as our guide in cultivating awareness in our lives and creating habitat for all of life to thrive.
