WHO WE ARE
Transformative Soil and Landscapes is not just a name; it’s a recognition of the beautiful ability of soil and our landscapes to transform people, our food, our environment, and our community. In addition, Transformative Soil and Landscapes also defines what we hope to create. Through the principles of permaculture, biology, and a gift economy, we wish to create and nurture sustainable food systems that provide the most nutritious and diverse food available on the planet right in people’s backyards and in community gardens.
WHAT WE DO
"We seek to teach and spread knowledge of permaculture, soil biology, and sustainable building practices so that others may become self-sustaining and share their knowledge."
As a Nonprofit, we facilitate and organize volunteers to install and maintain these edible landscapes and gardens. This allows us to eliminate labor costs in landscaping, typically ranging from $75-$100 per hour. Eliminating this cost barrier makes creating these transformative landscapes accessible to everyone, allowing us to choose jobs based on intent and spirit rather than economic standing.
Our Core Principles:
1. Nobody is turned away because of economic status. Instead, they are evaluated for possible impact and how well they align with our mission statement.
2. We seek to teach and spread knowledge of permaculture, soil biology, and sustainable building practices so that others may become self-sustaining and share their knowledge.
3. We will always refer back to our mission statement in our decisions and then seek the most long-term sustainable model over convenience.
4. We seek to demonstrate unconditional love, faith in humanity, servitude to others, and a calling to community.
