It's a busy spring here at the Center For Bioregional Living.

I am walking a good diversity of properties, helping my clients throughout the region to make sense of what they own, what trees are there, how to understand and solve water issues, from a 7000 square foot Bed and Breakfast, on 12 acres just down the road from the Omega Institute, being considered by a graduate with a Ph.D for a ecological B & B to a 1/4 acre property for a client in White Plains.
