Owner, Phillip Gatchell, started Loamstead Edible Landscaping with the goal of turning the vegetable garden into the new lawn. After completing a one year apprenticeship at Love Apple Farms in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Phillip began building raised bed gardens using the methods he learned at the farm. His educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture from Colorado State University and a Permaculture Design Certificate from the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center. Combining a keen eye for design with hands on landscaping experience, Phillip creates beautiful landscapes and is able to express his ideas through form and function.
