Why, hello there.
I am Susan Cousineau, and I am a farmer, scientist, systems-thinker, and strategist.
I help individuals and families design eco-friendly, health-centric landscapes and home systems to face an uncertain future.
My experiences and training in permaculture and regenerative agriculture design have fueled a lifelong passion for movement-based, wildlife-friendly habitats for wild things, human and otherwise.
