Ecological Land Planning & Design
Guiding land stewards to make ecologically informed decisions
We design and plan farms and ranches, food forests, edible and medicinal gardens, and native drought resilient landscapes that nurture the health of the land and people.
We pride ourselves on the relationships we build with our clients and our commitment to fostering reciprocity in relationship with the land.
Our process is educational and transformative for all people involved to develop land stewardship skills and ecological systems awareness.
Our vision is to support a culture of global ecological citizenship, where people are an essential part of evolving unique bioregional relationships with the land they inhabit. We envision a world where people are dedicated to being responsible custodians of the land to nurture abundant and healthy landscapes for generations to come.
We start with an in-depth stakeholder survey, land survey, and soil test analysis to support clients' understanding of their place in the regional ecosystem. Through education, designing efficient irrigation systems, and selecting regionally adapted plants we help clients mitigate risks of investing in their land.
We work with clients to tap into the regenerative processes of the land and to see the potential in their land they may not have identified. We plan, develop, and manage projects to evolve with the changing climate and the unique lifestyles of our clients. We work with landowners and developers of residential properties, farms and ranches, and travel the globe to support regenerative agriculture and design.
Join us on a mission to cultivate a network of people who value and are actively working to enhance soil health, foster drought resilience, support biodiversity, sequester carbon, and produce local food.
What is Regenerative Design?
We rely on the current working definition developed by the Regenesis group which states the following:
"a regenerative project seeks to build the evolutionary capability of the systems into which it is designed...In other words, regenerative projects seek to transform human communities into living systems enablers. They help lay foundations for the ongoing evolution of natural and social systems, enabling them to increase in viability and health as the world changes around them."
The four guidelines of Regenerative design are:
1) Maintain the potential for evolution.
2) Align with the wisdom of nature.
3) Define projects by their roles.
4) Grow value-generating capacity.
