AMY HITE specializes in residential hobby farms and school gardens. For the past 15 years, Amy has helped homeowners rehabilitate their soil and connect to the land by creating fun, family-friendly gar- dens with a focus on outdoor activities. She has designed pools, bocci courts, meditation labyrinths, potager gardens, chicken coops, orchards, native habitat restoration gardens, fireplaces, outdoor kitchens, bmx pump tracks, tree houses, and living roofs. All of her designs focus on regeneration and use sustainable materials and strategies to harvest water, reduce waste, and build healthy ecosystems.
Amy is hoping to broaden her reach to include community development around agriculture and nature play. She believes that humans have an innate, deep con- nection with nature and good design can remind people of this important relationship.
“Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.” - Rumi
“Nature is a totally efficient, self-regenerati ng system. IF we discover the laws that govern this system and live synergistically within them, sustainability will follow and humankind will be a success. “ - R. Buckminster Fuller
