We will survey your site together to determine what resources you have, and what we might need to incorporate.

This part is about building relationships between fungi, bacteria, worms, and insects, which all connect to build soils life and health. This is where cover cropping, mulching, leaves, compost aid this process.
When we combine a number of solutions, those interconnections allow a system to flourish. Water, soil, fungi, plants, animals, livestock, and more can be considered at this stage.
The most important piece of this process is you. What do you feel when you hear birds, smell the herbs, see the flowers, taste the harvest? What are your values, your needs, and what are you passionate about?
