“To forget how to dig the earth and tend the soil is to forget ourselves.” – Gandhi
The Little Acre is a Mini-Farming business employing the principles of Permaculture and the methods of Biointensive farming. Permaculture is an ecological design approach used to create sustainable living systems. Biointensive gardening is a fusion of French Intensive and Biodynamic farming methods in which crops are hand-tilled and planted closer than traditional farming. Mini-Farming is perfect for small spaces and will increase biodiversity in your local ecosystem, producing higher yields over time.
Let us bring new life to your little acre. With Mini-Farming we will help you grow more food than you ever imagined on less land than you ever thought possible!
Our mission is to provide support for clients who want to grow organic food, transcend current resource intensive land practices (food not lawns, please!), and green their business image and/or their lives. The Little Acre makes healthy food accessible to people of all socioeconomic levels. Our clients want to reconnect to the land, explore their local foodshed, liven-up their diets, and experience life in creatively designed, functional, yet stunningly beautiful food gardens. We at The Little Acre cultivate expertise, empowerment, and ecology.
