Land-Use Planning for Ecological Intelligence
Shades of Green, Inc. is an ecological landscape design firm serving the Southern Appalachian bioregion of north central Georgia and the Atlanta area. For nearly a decade, we have regenerated the health of local ecosystems by designing and installing beyond-sustainable permaculture landscapes that provide organic food, beauty, medicine, fertile soils, and clean water, while building resilient communities and local economy. We focus on Permaculture Design principles. Our designs are elegant and inspired, and seek to nestle human activity and development in a holistic understanding so that our actions as stewards respond to nature rather than manipulate it. We aim to strengthen all of our connection to the living world and inextricably weave ourselves into a thriving and viable ecology, one living landscape at a time. We work on all scales, from project management of new development, to institution-level research farms, from broad-acre restoration and conservation, to small-scale residential projects. There is no project too large or too small. We invite you to explore what is possible as a steward of your land, and let us empower you to contribute in a meaningful way in the healing of this beautiful home we all share.
