Edible Landscapes Provide Fresh Food

A properly designed edible landscape can really bring a property to life; imagine picking fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and herbs from your own back yard. Consider the benefits of a vegetable garden, a bee and butterfly garden, or a backyard orchard. Start planning now by hiring an ecological edible landscape professional. Let this be the year that you realize your gardening goals.

Richie Mitchell, owner of Bear Creek Organics specializes in edible landscapes. His forte is developing ecological systems that are rooted in science and centered on his expertise of the local growing conditions. He also is a talented designer and has a knack for creating balance and flow in the landscape. Mitchell sets himself apart from other designers by maintaining an edible landscaping plant nursery custom tailored to the Northeast. You can choose from a plethora of organically grown fruit and nut trees, berry and nut bushes, native perennial flowers and medicinal herbs.

Michell asks, “What is the value of having a beautiful food-producing landscape that really works for you and your land? On the other hand, what is it costing you every year that you don’t get started?”
