Science-based regenerative systems? CHECK.

Why, hello there.

I am Susan Cousineau, and I am a farmer, scientist, systems-thinker, and strategist.

With my biologist husband Laine MacTague, I help individuals and families design eco-friendly, health-centric landscapes and home systems to face an uncertain future.

Our experiences and training in permaculture and regenerative agriculture design have fueled our lifelong passions for movement-based, wildlife-friendly habitats for wild things human and otherwise.

(Need to know a little bit more about me, who I help, and how I help them.... and how I can help you, too? Then head on over here).

Check out our current offerings, and feel free to reach out if you don't see what you're looking for but think you might want to work together. We look forward to meeting you!
