They advise farmers, landowners and conservation organizations on business and technical solutions using solely regenerative and biologically intelligent practices. Their expertise is land stewardship and regenerative farming practices with a focus on natural farming techniques such as fermentation processes, carbon sequestration, fire hazard mitigation, and nutrient and water retention.
We would like to offer classes so that anyone with an interest can learn these techniques, whether for their own land or for volunteer projects or community projects. We would especially like to teach at risk youth and ex-felons to develop life skills and survival skills so they don’t have to depend on other people.

Hobbies: fishing, spearfishing, and foraging for mushrooms and other types of food
Favorite snack: chocolate
Best work moment: The end of the harvest season. It’s a feeling of accomplishment and we can relax and enjoy the fruits of our labor. I know clients are going to make money and that makes me happy.
