This Ecological Landscape Alliance tour is led by landscape designer Sanne Kure-Jensen. After years of ecologically guided design, planting and maintenance, this destination is a thriving landscape ecosystem and bountiful garden. This professionally designed, organically managed property includes a wildflower meadow, liberty lawn and honeybee apiary. Perennial and woodland gardens offer food and shelter for pollinators, birds and wildlife as well as compost inputs and firewood. Leaves, twigs, finished compost and wood ash feed soil life, continuing the cycle. Vegetable and herb gardens feed the homeowners with a comfortable balance between pests and beneficial insects. Fruit trees and shrubs benefit honeybees; homeowners share berries, fruit and honey.
