Garden-Farming, Permaculture and You!


“We are stardust, we are golden,
We are billion-year-old carbon,
And we’ve got to get ourselves back to the garden.”
~Joni Mitchell

Not everyone knows “how-to” garden or might not have realized that until this very moment, that you may yearn to take up gardening. And, we’ve been raised with lawn mowers as the American way of life. If you are in need of garden growing advice and mentoring, or feel you can’t grow your own vegetables due to lack of space, time, or inclination……or if you are honestly afraid to give up your lawn, I’m here to support you.

I offer garden design and yard transformation services and will provide the help you need ….”to grow more fruits, nuts, berries, herbs and vegetables, than you ever thought possible on less land than you could imagine”…and to have a truly beautiful, “yarden”.

Consider contacting me for a garden consultation.

Interested in learning about permaculture and garden-farm design in 2018? Ask me about upcoming presentations and the permaculture series, with  4-week classes focusing on growing your food while combining perennials in your annual gardens with polyculture design.  Interested in delving deeper? Consider joining us for a Permaculture Design Course(PDC)  happening in the Northern Michigan  region in 2018, or taking an on-line Permaculture Design Course, that I will be co-teaching in a Working with Children and Youth module.
