Using the synergy of elements and nature to enhance the vitality, productivity and beauty of landscapes.  From the initial vision, to the implementation, to guiding the ecosystem as it develops, we offer services and support every step of the way.

OUR SERVICES

WATERSHED RESTORATION

ECOSYSTEM REGENERATION

Ecosystems represent our global wealth. Regenerating diverse, interconnected systems is the clear path for a productive and healthy future.  We create renewed vigor and life within landscapes, reviving the ecology of the past with tools of the present.

The hydrological balance of our planet has been severely disturbed - leading to desertification, flooding and other catastrophic consequences.  Implementing strategies and techniques to repair the water cycle is the most important task of our time.

AGROFORESTRY

AQUACULTURE

Water is life; aquaculture is the natural cultivation of this resource.  From raising fish, crustaceans, aquatic insects and plants to a higher level ecology - aquaculture includes a wide range of strategies and techniques for developing symbiotic ecosystems.

Forests play a huge role in reestablishing balance to our global ecology.  Agroforestry presents a wide range of opportunities for cultivation including: nuts and fruits, building materials, fuel, fungi, and animal-integrated ecosystems.

TERRACE  SYSTEMS

WATER RETENTION LANDSCAPES

Terrace-based agriculture has been used for ages to retain water and soil, while increasing stability and productivity.  Terrace systems represent the most effective and proven way to cultivate sloped landscapes, a natural solution to maximize natural resources.

From ponds and dams to paddies and chinampas, water retention represents the most productive and vital features of any landscape.  Water is the ultimate capital of any farm or homestead - managing this resource effectively is of extreme importance.

NATURAL BUILDING

SPRING  DEVELOPMENT

Springs represent the highest quality water - distilled by the sun, mineralized and vitalized by the earth.  Developing a spring is the process of capturing and preserving the quality of this water so that it is easily and readily available.

Using natural materials we build infrastructure that is both effective and beautiful.  Earth cellars, earth stables, greenhouses, timber framing, masonry, and straw bale construction are some of the techniques we have implemented.
