- Kimberly Brown
Over the years, I have developed a keen ability
to “read the landscape,” bringing forth the story of a place and seeing the potential possibilities.
I listen to my clients and the land.
I can meet you at whatever level of experience you are at. Wherever you come from.
I am excited to help you get "out there" and connect with the earth.
My work is fueled by my
Love of Nature
My "Here We Grow" Vision
Inspire people to enjoy gardening
Help my clients feel confident and motivated
Bring permaculture concepts to every day people
Help people move from vision to action
Help people connect with the earth
Show up as an ally and a resource for my community
To Help more people live a regenerative lifestyle

Be a voice for mama earth
.The skills I share with my clients are unique.
I have spent my life working outside tending gardens
My textbooks have been watching the seasons and harvesting many lessons from life. My teacher has been mother nature.
For the past 26 years I have supported myself as a biodynamic farmer, living a homesteading lifestyle, offering real life-permaculture education to the public, produced seed crops and market produce, planted orchards and food forests and pollinator habitats, raised many animals and a couple farm raised human babies, and I have perfected the art of eating home-grown food year ’round,
I delight in bringing back depleted landscapes to beautiful thriving vitality.
I combine beauty and practicality with the grace of a feminine touch
I am one of those rare people who have actually lived permaculture, the “on the ground, hands dirty” kind of permaculture, not so much the classroom style.
In 1995, I co-created Seven Seeds Farm in Williams, Oregon with my former husband Don Tipping.
Together we turned a dilapidated homestead into a thriving example of “Permaculture In Action.”
Seven Seeds Farm is a unique combination of a permaculture demonstration site, seed business, a profitable, biodynamic farm and a renowned internship program. Seven Seeds is a hub for hands-on educational opportunities, farm tours, and community events.
I have been out there "doing it"....in the rain fixing ditches, thigh deep in a frozen creek to fix the water line, slug hunting in the dark by headlamp, midwifing our sheep with my baby on my back, dancing with corn, toting our wares to the farmers market, grazing on fresh picked food for lunch, chasing ducks out of the kale, saving the peaches from the possums and finding new ways to eat frozen potatoes,
I love to look around and use materials that are already on-site before buying new things.
My favorite projects are the ones that flow, when we can sense we are working with Mother Nature and everyone is working well together.
