Are We A Good Fit?

Projects are successful for a number of reasons: first and foremost, that client and consultant are a good fit.

Projects are successful for a number of reasons: first and foremost, that client and consultant are a good fit.

What does this mean?

Over the years I've worked with homesteaders, community groups, municipalities, garden clubs, intentional communities, market gardens, farms, conservation associations, heritage foundations, agricultural training programs and property owners. All have had one thing in common: they see the value in, and are committed to, being personally involved in our working process. They also tend to share a few common beliefs that mean we see the world - both its challenges and opportunities - in a similar way.

Take a moment to review the points below, and see if we're a good fit.

Does this sound like you?

  • You’re ready to articulate your goals, focusing on the quality of your whole life.
  • You want to create a solid plan for a regenerative, productive system - one that supports a future for yourself, family or organization.
  • You’re willing to be fully engaged in a reiterative, dynamic process that can be up to 6-12 months.
  • And finally - despite all the challenges we face, the looming crises and doomsday scenarios - you are able to laugh, as we do, in the face of the global epidemic of absurdity and uncertainty.

It's a fit...

If you've made it this far, chances are that the way I approach design resonates works for you. Let me know how I can best serve your project.

Your pace, depth of knowledge, active ppt style, simplicity and iconic approach to the imagery, clear and concise answers to questions, rapport with the students, and bite-sized approach to key learning outcomes was AWESOME.
