Providing both direct consultancy and contractor referrals to implement a Participatory Client Engagement Process for your project, working with Colin ensures a holistic approach for long term sustainability.
"Colin was instrumental in making our dreams for starting an urban farm a reality through his design and planning. He came to our sites,
surveyed the space and worked with us to create a design that then guided our further planning, implementation, and fundraising for the
program. Colin's designs helped us secure some of our first grants, kickstarting (our farms) into reality. I would highly recommend Colin's
work and expertise on all things sustainable agriculture design and planning, and helping turn your dreams into actual movement."
