The TreeYo Permaculture team embodies the permaculture principle of diversity with its offerings of varying services. It is a dendritic pattern of sorts, imagine a shrub with three main trunks, or the fusion of soil, water, and trees. These main tenants can be seen below in the graphic and explained further through the headers and links. They are summarized as the following: Holistic Education, Consulting and Design, and implementation and project management.

While some of this work is in short bursts, alternatively some of the work we do is with longer term relationships. Those we call project partners and it is often a fusion of all three of these tenants above. To explore these projects more, check out that page as well.
We most often work as a team but members of our team will work on individual projects and may also collaborate with other teachers at times. Our consultation work emphasizes the TreeYo permaculture Holistic Development Model, a tried and tested approach. whole farm planning and development including edible landscaping, 3D modeling, and holistic management. In the end, we like to think of ourselves as part of the overall permaculture guild, each having unique interests and talents that support the others while striving for the same common goal. The result is the creation of a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
