We were happy to have Brandon come and evaluate our property and our project goals. He helped to bring perspective to our project, which allows is to focus on a more narrow goal, concurring specific steps at a time. He gave us confidence in the direction that we are heading with our project. He provided some suggestions about working within our environment as best as we can, which really leads towards our ultimate goal of creating a sustainable, and natural environment.

Wanted to support the efforts of the organization as well as gain the information needed. Also wanted an interactive process not someone just to do it all for me. Interested in a beautiful landscape but also eco-friendly and edible. Was a truly great experience.
