When I first decided that I wanted to improve the health and looks of my Bozeman yard, I pretty quickly determined that I was out of my depth. I wanted the yard to look good in a conventional sense, but I also wanted it to be earth-friendly. I got a home consult from Kareen. That was almost a year ago, and Kareen has been a huge help in learning about permaculture concepts and applying them to my yard. It's spring now, and I'm ready to plant. I feel like I have a very good chance that this year's perennial plantings will grow into the yard I want with the amount of work I can handle. Thank you Kareen!"

As soon as I moved to Bozeman where the growing season is short, I knew I didn't want to waste any time experimenting by trial and error. I wanted to work with a consultant to learn the keys to success for growing a garden in a cold climate. I got so much more working with Kareen. With roots in the community, deep knowledge of permaculture and a thoughtful approach, Kareen has been an invaluable resource and advisor, not only to help transform my garden and greenhouse into a productive space, but also in the design of a resilient food forest that will provide for years to come.

Thank you so much Kareen! Your consultation was everything I hoped for and more. I'm inspired to take my property to the next level!"

Kareen helped me look at the big picture in my weedy garden, and laid out steps I needed to take without continuing to feel overwhelmed by the task. She provided lots of incredible guidance and information, but also put me in the driver’s seat and gave me the confidence to envision and build my new garden space. I no longer feel that all of my time is spent weeding and digging. Now I’m maintaining and continuing to build a functional space, and it’s become so much more fun.

Thank you SO much Kareen for coming out! Your ideas are so valuable! I would never have thought of any of this and it ALL makes so much sense for the property! I have SO much excitement and enthusiasm for getting outside this year and much of it is because of YOU! Thank you for sharing your guidance, expertise, wisdom, philosophy and resources!
