What We Do
We work with beginning and experienced gardeners to create beautiful, diverse and delicious edible landscapes at the residential, neighborhood, and community scale.
Our experienced team works closely with clients to design and install beautiful, productive, and low-maintenance gardens uniquely tailored to each site and designed using permaculture principles.
Since 2006, we have installed more than 125 edible landscapes, or food forests. These gardens simultaneously grow vegetables, fruit trees and berry bushes while helping regenerate the land. They harvest and utilize rainwater, build soil, and provide habitat for beneficial insects and animals. They create abundance both for human communities and the environments they’re tied to. At BB, we use principles and practices from biointensive gardening, permaculture, organic gardening, and urban farming to create diverse, productive, and lower-maintenance residential, neighborhood, and community gardens. We do this in a way that meets real human needs at an affordable price.
Education, Training and Guidance
The process is as important as the harvest. We tailor our designs and installations so clients can participate as much (or as little!) as they desire. Our educational programs help kids explore the wonder of gardening – from making compost, to planting seeds, to tending plants, to the joy of harvesting their first crop.
Our training helps home owners, facility managers, community groups and volunteers to tend, adapt, and develop their landscapes over the long haul. And our workshopseries has coached hundreds of folks across the Triangle to build their skills in everything from growing shiitake mushrooms to raisin’ backyard chickens.
We never fail to be amazed at what can be learned from a day in the garden. Care to join us?
Our community work centers around sliding scale workshops and community workdays that have coached and trained hundreds of people in many aspects of home scale food production, from growing edible mushrooms to raising backyard chickens. Through our urban agriculture and community garden projects, we walk with youth, neighbors, and allies. Together we can work towards food justice and food sovereignty in the creative and resilient communities we all live and work in.
Starting with a consultation where we assess the site and your goals for it, we work together to shape a design for your new edible landscape. Once we have approved a design, we do what we do best—get the plants in the ground! Contact us today to start a project that’s tailored to your needs, budget, and space.
