An integrated ecological design company based out of Saint Louis, Missouri, and Denver, Colorado.

We are rooted in the field of Permaculture Design, a whole system design methodology aiming for integration between human and ecological communities. From urban neighborhoods to rural agroecosystems, our design processes restore and regenerate the projects we work on.

Whether we're solving stormwater challenges with green infrastructure, increasing farm productivity and land health, or creating functional landscapes for homes or whole developments , innovative planning and design is the result.

Students gain hands-on experiences in ecological design, urban agriculture, wise water management, and community development. Lab facilities consist of a greenhouse, subtropical and temperate agroforestry, vegetable gardens, wastewater reuse, and green infrastructure.
