Permaculture Design and Edible Landscaping

With our years of experience, we can design any size landscape, from a small culinary herb spiral located outside your kitchen door to an ecovillage complete with flourishing food forest. We will work with you to fulfill your ecological potential! We love to create integrated systems for resilience.

Our projects have included design of Hawaiian Sanctuary Gardens on the Big Island of Hawaii, food forest design at Joe's Farm in Roberts Creek, BC (Canada), to permaculture garden installations in many locations in the United Sates and Mexico.

We design aesthetically pleasing, maximally efficient spaces for business, entertainment and education. Our designs include a cafe at Hawaiian Sanctuary, a teaching kitchen for the Art of Life Foundation, as well as consultations for  restaurants around the USA.
