About Us

The Hartman People-
Dave and Susie Hartman are certified permaculture designers and master gardeners.

We built our homestead in the mountains of Montana and have been living off the grid since 1999. We have experience with raising goats, pigs, rabbits, chickens, ducks and bees. Our sight at 6300′ is home to a food forest with swale systems. This is an actual working model of permaculture on a rugged landscape. We are experimenting with many different permaculture techniques and testing out many different varieties of plants at this elevation.

Dave is working as a permaculturalist at the Boulder Hot Springs where he tends a small scale geothermal greenhouse and a forest garden.

Susie is currently coordinator for The Boulder Forest Garden, a 1.5 acre forest garden on a city park in Boulder, Montana.
