Design & Consultation

We at OM Valley offer design and consultation for those who don’t have the time to participate in one of our Permaculture classes. We are happy to offer design/consultation work to those clients who are looking to create a more interactive and sustainable lifestyle,whether at their home or business. They can be from low maintenance edible landscapes to efficient, fully engaged self sustaining homesteads, depending on your time and interest. We also offer Strategic Regenerative Business development, which will help your business thrive during these changing times. Every step we take on the journey to minimize our ecological footprint is a mile for the next millenium of regenerative living.

This is because we design our systems to leverage maximum impact with minimal input. Each time we plant an edible landscape, design an energy efficient home, install regenerative energy systems or create a business that aligns with nature’s principles, we have an exponential impact for the future of our children and of all life on planet earth. This is what we hope we can help you to do on your journey to a regenerative lifestyle and culture.
