GIVE THE GIFT OF A GARDEN!

THINK GLOBAL - SHOP LOCAL

When you buy from an independent, locally-owned business significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers, and farms — continuing to strengthen the economic base of the community.

Locally owned businesses often make more local purchases requiring less transportation, and generally set up shop in town or city centers as opposed to developing on the fringe. This generally means contributing less to sprawl, congestion, habitat loss, and pollution.
How many times have your family and friends said this to you?

If only I had more time to spend in the garden.
or
I wish I knew more about growing fruit and nut trees.
or
It would be great to have an expert to help me with my gardens.

Now you can give the gift of a garden or garden advice to your friends and family.

Simply contact us today and we’ll set you up with a beautiful gift certificate that can either be directly mailed to the garden loving people in your life or we can meet in person to discuss details.

Either way, you’ll be supporting a local Chico business while caring for the planet at the same time!

Some Gift Certificate Options

4 Hour Permaculture Design Consultation: ($250.00)
Includes: Aerial, soil and topography maps (when available for property) , often a specific target area quick sketch, ideas and planning tips such as how to drought proof your property, edible forest gardening with perennial food crops and animal integrations as well as other permaculture strategies.

Rainwater Harvesting or Greywater System Design: ($ X off amount of system design)
Includes: Initial consultation to discuss design options, system design with scaled measurements and (if necessary) modification suggestions to existing system (e.g. laundry to landscape greywater, roof gutters or downspouts), design of rainwater storage system and/or passive conveyance to garden via infiltration trenches and basins, cost for implementation and system management guidelines.

Permaculture Design: ($ X off amount of full design*)
Includes: Permaculture design which integrates the specific needs of the client as a whole person/family and the needs of the property as a productive ecosystem. The design process usually takes place over a 2 to 12 month time period (depending on property size, budget and project complexity).  During this time we work with the Client for multiple sessions in order to refine a detailed, long-term plan or site report.  The report includes mapping and documentation to reflect design elements such as water systems, access routes, buildings, earthworks, energy and nutrient cycling/systems, plantings, animals and social infrastructure, as well as budget, a phased installation time-line, and other supporting documents as needed.  A management guidebook can also be created which details out polyculture harvests, insectary calendars, rainwater system maintenance and more.
*
a full permaculture design, drawn to scale including plan overlays, is generally between $500.00-3,000.00 depending on site and client needs.
