for property owners
Be surrounded by lush plants, bees, birds, blooms, butterflies, and yes–even blueberries. Know that your yard provides a beautiful example to everyone in your community. Step out your back door and harvest fresh herbs, vegetables, fruits, roots–even eggs and honey.
for service providers
Use your soil and plant systems knowledge and get paid well for it, all with control of your schedule. Stop worrying about marketing, sales calls, chasing checks, clunky digital tools, even hiring–just get paid to do your highest and best work.

Our vision is a world in which human land use creates healthy biodiverse ecosystems that support life in all of its expressions.
We imagine people everywhere having access to affordable, chemical-free, environmentally regenerative, locally produced whole food.
We imagine homes, buildings, and communities surrounded by living beauty and biodiversity.
We imagine people being able to work locally outdoors for a living wage with a flexible schedule while improving property values.
Every Thrive Lot project means less chemicals dumped on lawns and industrial farms, fewer fossil fuels burned in mowing, blowing, and food transportation, less plastic waste in landfills from food packaging and landscape materials packaging, local gig jobs created, and homeowner property values improved.
