I’m Bret and I am High Sierra Permaculture – a guy steeped in permaculture knowledge. I am excited to share this knowledge with you to help you improve your property, your environment and inherently your quality of life.

My experience ranges from small organic farms to homesteads and community style properties. In addition, I have my Permaculture Design Certification. So I am not really a farmer, or a landscaper or a sustainability expert. I am somewhere in the middle of all of those.

This means that I can provide a special and unique perspective and skill set when it comes to approaching your project; one from a holistic approach of harmony between all aspects of land management, the aesthetics, food, functionality, the degree of maintenance, level of sustainability etc.

Ecological Landscaper Immersion - 6 month course at the Permaculture Skills Center in regenerative land design and development covering all aspects of permaculture design and installation.
Our teaching staff included: Erik Ohlsen, Toby Hemmenway (author of Gaia’s Garden), Brock Dolman
