Welcome to Terra Phoenix

Terra Phoenix Design is a collection of experienced designers, educators & consultants focusing on whole systems design and productive ecological landscapes. The core of our team is drawn from the Bullock’s Permaculture Homestead — a 30 year organization — and a pioneering collective in the field of ecological landscape design. You may learn more about our team by selecting the Design Team link to the left.

Our goal is to guide homeowners, developers, and private enterprises through the process of vision development, real estate search assistance, residential & commercial design, and both design & project review. On this site you will find comprehensive information on our related services and a portfolio of our collective work.

Terra Phoenix Design is frequently involved in a variety of sustainability-oriented events. Through this site we intend to keep you informed of upcoming events, as well as resources you can use to learn more about developing your vision. Feel free to check back periodically for new information.

Enjoy and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
