Landscape, Agriculture, Natural Designer - Linden L.A.N.D. Group

Since graduating in May 2009 with a degree in Community and International Development, I have gone on to pursue a Certificate in Sustainable Building and Design from Yestermorrow Design/Build School, in Warren, VT. While at Yestermorrow I concentrated on alternatives to waste water and storm water management. I am currently in the process of working on my practicum project in order to successfully complete my certificate program. In March 2010 I landed a job with a small Landscape Design/Build firm out of Addison, VT, Linden Landscaping and Design. Over the past season, along with the firm's principals, Tim and Rebecca Lindenmeyr, we have implemented a new business structure for the company highlighting a more holistic approach to the services offered, and with that, changed the name to The Linden L.A.N.D Group (Landscape, Agriculture and Natural Design). We hope to feed around eight families this Summer and upcoming Winter with a work-trade homestead farm CSA to provide veggies and meat for each shareholder, while also keeping up with the landscape design work that the firm is previously known for.
