Embracing Life in the Soil
Experience nature's bounty with Pete Kanaris' permaculture design techniques & organic gardening systems
With decades of experience in horticulture, Pete knows how to bring life back to the soil. Utilizing swale systems, mulch amendments, BIOCHAR, nitrogen-fixing species and routine "Chop & Drop" composting, he can help you create an ecosystem that embraces diversity and life in the soil. Let us assist you in creating a legacy that will stand the test of time. Contact us today and let's begin building a regenerative system together! We look forward to working with you.
WHAT WE DO
Our goal is to restore natural ecosystems and maximize diversity and life in the soil. By focusing on process-based agriculture instead of input-based agriculture, we can begin our projects with heavy mulch amendments using partially decomposed hardwood chips for rainfall capture and swale systems that utilize the land's contour lines for water conservation and storage.
Through careful selection of trees and other supportive species, we create nutrient-dense soil filled with beneficial organisms like mycorrhiza, mimicking the process of a natural forest. We add BIOCHAR to every planting site to help retain organic material in the soil where it is needed most. We aim to create something that will last for generations, and we are here to help you achieve this goal. Through nitrogen-fixing species and routine "Chop & Drop" composting, you can be certain that your agriculture system will continue to produce even when you are not physically present to care for it.
Let us assist you in creating a legacy that will stand the test of time and make your mark on this world. Contact us today for a consultation and let's begin building a regenerative system together! We look forward to working with you.
A bit about pete
Pete Kanaris is a passionate horticulturist and entrepreneur who has dedicated his life to creating beautiful and edible landscapes. Growing up with a natural love of plants, he honed his landscaping skills while working with a large multi-national company that specialized in botanical tourism destinations. In 2000, at the young age of 21, he founded his own landscaping company.
In 2011, Pete and his wife Mel decided to take the business in a new direction by creating GreenDreams as an edible landscaping and organic garden company. Since then, they have never stopped learning or lost their passion for growing food. Pete is Permaculture Design Certified under Wayne Wiseman of The Permaculture Project and has hosted and attended an Advanced PDC course with Eric Toensmeier, author of several top permaculture books.
To further his knowledge, Pete takes each educational journey as an opportunity for learning and packs a camera to document it. You too can follow along on this adventure by visiting the Green Dreams YouTube channel. Here you will learn about all the things Pete and his team have learned over the years, from hindsight to hearing highlights from fellow growers. So join along on this journey as you learn more about edible landscaping and permaculture design!
