(Special note: As of June, 2015, this entire blog was closed and all of our offerings were moved to our new home in a secluded valley north of Corvallis, Oregon. All of the following services are still available, but only to residents of Corvallis and nearby towns. A new blog has been started to serve our new community. If anything you see in this (now closed!) blog sounds interesting to you, please click over to the new blog and see what’s been happening since our move.)
There are several ways I can help you grow a beautiful deep nature garden, and several ways to continue its evolution.
Do you love what you’ve read here at this web site, but you are too far away to come to one of the classes or have me over for on-site visits? I am delighted to support you through emailed advice as you begin the shaping and evolution of your own deep nature garden.
You are welcome to send an email any time you have a question about your deep nature space. It is very, very, very helpful if you can include some good photographs with your email, and be as specific as you can in your questions. I am happy to exchange as many emails as you like. Send them to nick [at] mindheart.org.
This offering of remote advice is currently free, but if you feel that you have received value through this exchange, you can offer return value using money or any of several other ways.
During such a visit, you can ask as many questions as you like. I will provide as much specific advice as you need, make suggestions, and possibly demonstrate with a bit of actual garden work. You can then apply my advice (if you like it!) to do most of the actual hands-dirty work yourself, on your own schedule.
Consulting visits are arranged as needed, whenever you’d like more advice, suggestions, and demos. If you take the introductory class, your first one-hour consulting visit is free. Consulting is measured hourly, and as always you can offer return value using money or any of several other ways.
One more way I can help you grow a deep nature garden is hands-dirty work-sharing visits. The purpose of such a visit is to provide in-depth instruction and sharing of knowledge, lore, and deep nature gardening skills. It is a more intense, work-focused experience than a consulting visit because you will actually be getting your own hands dirty as we work together in your garden.
Work-sharing visits can be arranged as needed, or we can set up a regular plan of visits, whether weekly, bi-weekly, or on some other schedule. They are priced by the hour, and you can offer return value using money or any of several other ways.
let’s be creative!
I am always open to new, creative ways to bring more deep nature spaces into being. If there’s a way of working with you that you don’t see above and would like to try, get in touch and propose something!
