Would you like to create a place where your land and home is a source of production instead of just consumption?
Would you like to know more about the various plant and tree species that are on your property and what they indicate about your climate, soil and water sources?
Have you purchased raw land and are in need of guidance on developing it into a homestead or for wildlife management?
Strong Roots Resources offers all of these services as well as fodder tree planning, regenerative livestock management, food forest development, no till gardening techniques, rainwater harvesting and earthwork suggestions.
Every property is unique, and I help evaluate the land with your goals, timeline and abilities in mind.
Howdy, my name is Kerry Brown and I’ve made it my mission to teach others how to understand their landscape and to create a productive property of any size, including urban and suburban lots. Over a 13-year period I turned a small urban lot into a productive space that included edible, medicinal and pollinator gardens, small livestock and wildlife habitat with ponds, various composting systems and rainwater catchment. Over time, all of these elements were integrated into a closed loop system. In October 2020, we moved to a larger space and are expanding our production plans on several acres of property. We are taking the lessons learned from urban homesteading and scaling it up for larger regenerative practices to include tractoring systems for livestock, animal fodder systems, wildlife habitat management and invasive removal while applying processes that regenerate the soil.
I focus on techniques for intensive growing and management and closed loop practices that improve the health of the soil, air and water. I teach you how to see the big picture of the land and help you avoid costly and time-consuming mistakes. I also assist with a priority list of tasks and approaches. Whether you want to develop a homestead property, a getaway location, a small hobby farm or a commercial enterprise, my skills and knowledge can contribute to your success.
A thorough in person consultation and evaluation of your land that begins with a discussion of your goals and needs. I look at the movement of wind and water, aspect, slope, microclimates, elevation and tree cover. I also evaluate soil condition, the restrictions that are in place and help determine the appropriate uses of the property.
I can determine what types of species will be appropriate for your site and provide lists of specimens as well as some resources for obtaining them. I can also provide a garden planting plan and timeline, including interplanting techniques and guild suggestions.
I also document useful tree, shrub, flower and other species via GPS photo and physical tagging which is inserted into a Google doc and emailed to you. This includes edible wild and medicinal foods, along with suggested uses and harvesting information.
I identify invasive species and offer suggestions for removal / control in order to reestablish a resilient ecosystem.
