Why, hello there.
I am Susan, and I am a farmer, scientist, systems-thinker, and strategist.
I specialize in offering highly individualized, strategic technical support for Earth-centric humans with ambitious projects. My key services include:
🌿 overview planning (circular calendars are my current jam for getting 'everything out front' in 2022!),
🌿 custom spreadsheets,
🌿 editing and proofreading,
🌿 critical feedback on client reports, grant applications and proposals, and
🌿 long-article or book project organization and custom science-based research.
My techstack includes Google Suite, Notion, Trello, Scrivener, Zotero, Affinity Designer and some QGIS basics.
Do you have a big, hairy, audacious project you want to create? I'd love to work with you in 2022.
(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).
Sign up here to receive emails from the The Farm Ecologist. Includes monthly updates to the literature database, upcoming courses and offers, and other fun things on a semi-regular basis.
A 60-minute webinar with Q&A where I walk you step-by-step through my process, developed over 20 years in academia, research and science communication, to better discern if what you're reading is fluff or fact.

We come out to your property and do a full walk-around, taking notes, photos and asking questions, and have some time to sit down and talk about different challenges and opportunities. We then go home and make a summary report of ~2 pages for you, which we share as a PDF, highlighting key elements and priorities based on our assessment. Turn-around time for this is approximately 5 days as we often take some time to let things percolate, sit and talk over dinner, and it allows us our preferred 'go slow to go fast' approach to land design.
A customizable package through which we work together to build effective, humanizing strategies and systems for your business. Base package includes 6 sessions with me 1-on-1 in weekly or biweekly calls and strategic Done-For-You (DFY) intensives. There is also a single-session option to try before buying the whole package.
