Partnering with home-owners, businesses, municipalities, planners, farmers, community groups & developers to connect food, place and people in inspiring ways!
We assemble & lead crews of experienced designers, organic landscapers, tree-planters, machine operators, permaculturalists & green builders to create edible organic landscapes.
Serving Greater Victoria, the Saanich Peninsula, the Southern Gulf Islands, as well as design consulting throughout Vancouver Island.
Edible landscapes combine the aesthetics of formal landscaping features with the functionality of the 'kitchen garden' and 'home orchard'. They can provide year-round access to fresh, nutrient-dense fruit and vegetables as well as give you a chance to get outside more often and engage with nature.

We witnessed a very high attention to detail and a respect for our needs as clients. The work site was kept tidy and clean between work phases. We are thrilled with our new food producing yard!
