Ecological Design is a local ecological design business. For over 15 years we have applied permaculture design principles to farms and gardens in the the Twin Cities metropolitan area, greater Minnesota and western Wisconsin.

Vision - The garden is a place of abundance, life and joy where people engage with the natural world, sustainably meeting their own needs as well as the needs of other species.

Mission - Bring urban and rural landscapes to life by providing products and services that produce food, function, habitat and beauty while connecting humans with the natural world.
