Initial Design Consultations are $150.

From food production to ecological health, we look at the dynamic factors of your situation in order to build a plan that works for both you and your place.

I walk the property with you to discuss your goals, then make focused recommendations on next steps and solutions to your unique issues. These last about 2 hours and result in a 1-2 page written report and a course of action.

My goal is to provide direct value and actionable possibilities from this visit. If you’d like to dig deeper, that is also my hope, but there should be enough work discovered to keep you busy for the next 1-2 years while you refine your goals for your life placed in the land around you.

Implement – Please Inquire (After June 2020)

I am exploring more design AND builds for clients. While I usually help people with a plan and guide them into doing the work themselves, I am finding more people would like a turnkey option. I offer reasonable rates and 10 years of experience in leading teams for Homestead and Farmscale installations.


None Currently – Hoping to firm up new education experiences by Summer 2020


For private coaching my rate varies (please inquire)

I create frameworks for the autodidact to accelerate their growth. This looks like private coaching where we co-develop goals and plans of action as well as a variety of personalized tools to monitor and assist growth.

I started with no experience in ecological design and practice. Trudging through this confusing and frustrating world grew me into a person who is now able to think quickly and critically for a variety of situations, but I would have loved some more focused assistance from a skilled practitioner. There are inflection points on the journey that can bog us down in our development. We will find better ways to sequence that progression. If you are a DIY person, let me help you DIY.
