Our design services span a range of sites- small tight urban spaces, community and school gardens, to urban agriculture plots. Each design is organically driven, oftentimes hand sketched and field-adjusted on site. We aim to use every space - vertical and horizontal, using the packing and stacking principles and 7 layers of permaculture design.

 

 Our designers often times work collaboratively to assist you in realizing your vision of your space. Whether it be for homesteading, a place of relaxation, or a healing/ medicinal/ therapeutic garden, we will create a design specifically for you.
