Services

I help individuals, organizations, and public entities create and maintain landscapes that regenerate health and wellbeing.

Measurable and Meaningful

Whether fire protection or food production, energy systems or public health, I will help you regenerate health and wellbeing.

I offer three services: education, evaluation, and prescription. Rates vary between tasks and length of time. But no matter the size or scope, once we agree on regeneration and health, I’ll use all my years of experience and research to help you realize your vision. Let’s go.

Service I Offer

I help individuals, organizations, and public entities create and maintain landscapes that regenerate health and wellbeing.

Education

Dynamic learning experiences, whether in the field, the classroom, or virtually.

I love to teach. Whether classroom or virtual, several hours or many weeks, I will create an enriching and inspiring educational experience. All classes involve landscaping and include:

  • Fire Protection
  • Food Production
  • Foraging
  • Integrated Pest Management
  • Maintenance
  • Ocean Friendly Gardens
  • Public Health and Self-Care
  • Regenerative Practices
  • Thermal Comfort
  • Urban Crafting

Evaluation

Evaluate your landscape on any number of ecological measures metrics.

The deeper the understanding, the better the prescription and outcomes. I will evaluate your landscape based on your needs and which might include the following examinations:
  • Biological Diversity
  • Carbon Capture
  • Energy Use
  • Erosion and Topsoil Loss
  • Public Health
  • Stormwater Management
  • Thermal Comfort
  • Regenerative Practices
  • Thermal Comfort
  • Wildfire Ignition
  • Possibility of Production, which includes energy, food, materials, textiles, and timber.

Prescription

Provide analysis, design, forecasts, maintenance tasks, and monitoring services.

A prescription serves specific goals and can include a design, but goes further to include negotiating with shareholders, long-term maintenance recommendations, economic and energetic forecasts, rituals for sustaining occupant interaction, and long-term monitoring.
