Tayler is an eco-social entrepreneur passionate about regenerative land management and permaculture design. With his partner Solara, he runs Hatchet & Seed, an edible landscaping and climate-smart land planning business, based in North Saanich, BC. With a B.A. in International Development Studies from the University of Saskatchewan and certificates in permaculture design, ecological design and organic horticulture, he is keen to make a global impact with local action. Tayler and Solara also co-manage a 3-acre permaculture-inspired garden farm and micro-nursery in North Saanich. With dozens of fruit trees, hundreds of edible plants, laying hens and (sometimes) Jersey cows, they’re keen to re-think conventional agriculture in favor of more ecological alternatives.
