Our farmstead, Earth Care Farms, showcases a budding permaculture design; complete with a strawbale house, swales, food forest and a multitude of native and cultivated edible plants.
We grow a wide range of crops:
Our farming practices seek to establish a diversity of life, soil fertility and positive methods of water retention. We are anti-chemical...Love good compost...and heavy mulchers!
There is major landscape TLC going on here... we only hope that our efforts are fruitful for many years to come!
Permaculture is a creative, integrative and ethical design science, creating systems that provide for Human needs and the Earth’s needs through mutually beneficial relationships.
Guided by Permaculture Ethics (Earth Care, People Care, and Resource Share) we offer a professional permaculture consultancy service backed up by design, implementation and maintenance. Our projects range from backyards up to multi-acreage sites to whole sub division designs.
As a practice our goal is to design long-term, site specific systems that revitalize the landscape to provide food, resources and beauty for the current and future generations.
Our edible landscaping approach sustainably integrates food producing plants within a decorative setting.
We create food production systems by planting layers of fruit & nut trees, fruit & nut producing bushes and shrubs, perennial herbs, vegetables, and edible flowers.
Our goal is to transform non-edible, ornamental landscapes into edible ones and reconnect people with growing and eating healthy food.
Our training, education, and experience is in architectural design. We seek sustainability in all our endeavors and this first and foremost includes the built environment.
Our expertise is in natural building methods. We have constructed and/or installed earth domes, straw-bale houses, out-buildings, out-houses, chicken coops, rain-water filtration systems, composite decks, pergolas and furniture, with thoughtfulness in resource, beauty and function.
