Our Mission

Making the World a Healthier, Friendlier Place

We value the gifts of the earth and believe by preserving those gifts, and incorporating them into our lives, we improve the health of our families and communities.  We promote this insight through landscape and garden design, community development, public television, education, social media, streaming services, speaking engagements and appearances, and a number of related businesses.

Our Main Hub

Urban Pioneers

We believe in supporting the vibrancy of all communities and have been a stronghold of positive activity for the past 20 years in the Quapaw Quarter of Little Rock, now known as the Historic Governor’s Mansion District.  Our downtown home is on a tree-lined street with off street parking and is within 2 minutes of I630 — making this a convenient office location for many locations in the region. A number of great restaurants, cafes, bakeries, and pubs are nearby, with the rich offerings of the River Market and downtown LIttle Rock just a few minutes away.  We provide private offices to our team members and keep the day rolling with fresh coffee. Our namesake and founder is in the office daily, offering helpful guidance and interaction for percolating ideas our creatives surface. Most of our teams–design, event planning, photography, social media, TV production–are located under the same roof, allowing for creative engagements and nimble project production.

The Moss Mountain Farm Property

Internationally recognized and arresting year-round, the Moss Mountain Farm property provides inspiration and endless content capturing for all of our teams and guests.  Many of our segments, pieces, events and meetings take place at this location, a private estate on 600 acres, sited 500 feet above the Arkansas River. Leisure gardens, organic vegetable gardens, rose conservancies, an apiary, aviary and multiple paths challenge our team members and guests to higher and better selves and work product.  We host national and international press, conservationists, philanthropists, politicians, artists, farmers, gardeners, events, weddings, business leaders, and volunteer organizations January to December each year.
