We are a worker-owned cooperative. Our team has decades of experience. We aim to be a one-stop shop for all your ecological gardening, homesteading, and landscaping needs, for residential, commercial, and public land.

Our slogan is “For People and Planet“, which reflects our triple-bottom-line mission. This means we strive to create social and ecological benefits as much as (or more than) financial benefit.

To achieve this, we use regenerative ecological practice. Click here to learn what it is, and why it’s better than sustainable or organic practice.
