Sustainability Consulting Services

  • Comprehensive Assessment

    This in-depth assessment helps us gather vital information about your dreams, resources, core life values, timeline, and desired process. As we get to know each other, we will dive deeper into your vision, intentions, and skill sets to chart a solid and realistic path to achieving your land stewardship and growing goals.

  • Enhanced Comprehensive Assessment

    An enhanced comprehensive assessment helps us gather vital information about your dreams and aspirations for living and growing on the land and chart a realistic path to achieving your goals. Additionally, it offers either a longer initial visit OR an on-site follow-up visit during which we can go into greater depth.

  • Extended Seasonal Support

    This season-long coaching and consulting offering is designed to help you imagine, develop, and implement projects and concepts in your growing environment with ongoing support. After an initial assessment of your goals, capabilities, and needs, we will provide ongoing support toward implementing your desired projects.

  • Targeted Consultation

    If you have a specific project, issue, or area in mind, we can dive right into a shorter and more focused consultation. Some examples of areas we could offer focused support are looking for land, renewable energy, water in the landscape, garden installation, and alternative energy.

  • Remote Assessment

    For clients outside of our practical reach and those who want to start their exploration remotely, this assessment takes place on video call or over the phone for ease of scheduling. This assessment offers the same comprehensive intake to gather information and allows for one-on-one time with our consultant for low-cost investment.

  • Hourly Follow-up Services

    This option is available for clients who have already been through one of the assessment packages. Consider this option to support your action plan, follow through on implementation, get ongoing one-on-one education, or further support with your service providers.

Let us be your partner on the journey towards self-reliance and sustainability.

Here’s how the process works:

Step 1: Request a free 20 minute consultation to help us get a deeper understanding of your goals and select a service that best meets your needs.

Step 2: Our sustainability experts will help you to assess your unique situation, then together we’ll design a customized, comprehensive plan for success.

Step 3: We work with you, on-site or virtually, to help make your visions a reality through coaching, consultation, hands-on instruction, and continued support.
