CONSULTATION

At Integrated Acres it is our mission to provide the skills knowledge and services to help established famers to be more efficient and resilient and help the new generation of young farmers to thrive. Our land-based design consultation services are an integral part of that formula. Simple and straightforward, our design work is deeply informed through our wealth of experience from around the globe. We want to help save you precious time and money while making your farm or ranch more profitable and sustainable!

Request a Consultation

We’re working with farmers and ranchers to produce more food at less cost. We integrate traditional land use practices with the ingenuity of today’s science so producers can focus on the importance of putting quality food on the table.

Having a thriving and healthy community means having the resources to meet everyone’s needs. We know that this idea extends beyond just ourselves, our families and extended communities. The very ecosystems we rely upon requires the same consideration. Returning surpluses into our broader ecological community feeds the foundation we all depend upon and provides more vitality for our benefit and enjoyment.
Clean water and verdant ecosystems are the foundation of our families’ health and our communities’ well-being. In our rapidly changing world we face increasingly complex challenges to the ethical, safe and healthy production of food. That is why Integrated Acres is teaming up with families, farmers, researchers, and non-profit organizations to help develop practical and resilient solutions.

It is our mission to integrate regenerative land use practices with modern and traditional stewardship for the healthy restoration of our agricultural soils, our vital rivers systems, and thriving happy communities.

About the Instructors:

Theron Beaudreau

Theron Beaudreau: For over a decade, Theron has been involved in Permaculture Design and education. His talent for engaging education has taken him all over the world and inspired many other quality teachers and designers. In 2014 Theron founded Integrated Acres, a design, consultation and, education firm, in the small ‘Deep East’ Texas town of Douglass. Today, Integrated Acres has been involved with several Permaculture Design Courses, public talks and, the 2016 host of international acclaimed designer Darren Doherty for an Integrated Farm Planning Convention. Theron looks to expand on these successes with a wider diversity of course offerings and engaging community examples of what permaculture can do for our families, communities and economy.

Additional instructors and guest speakers to be announced soon!

Have you ever felt challenged by attempting to sum up permaculture on the fly in 30 second ‘elevator speech?’ What about a thirty minute talk? One hour? It seems like the longer you have to talk about permaculture the easier it gets. Perhaps that is because permaculture covers such a wide variety of disciplines and subjects that the elevator speech just can’t do it justice?

Yet, try keeping that up for a full 72-hour PDC. It won’t matter how many subjects you are able to cover, how knowledgeable you are, or how much depth you are able to go into on any particular topic–if all you do is talk, you’ll have lost the audience, and with it the opportunity to inspire, before you’ve even begun to get to all those really valuable edges. True teaching, in any subject, and the ability to get the information to stick inside of our students’ heads requires a dynamic appoach, not just a regurgitator of facts. Great, memorable, life-changing PDCs are a heck of a lot more than a talking head, a marker, and a white board.

Zach Halfin
Absolutely! It’s a game changer.
Stephanie Lynn
This course is both beneficial to a person’s personal growth, but as well their abilities to engage others in a shared passion. By diving deep into the realm of connection and relationships with people and nature, students take away a wealth of knowledge and tools to continue sharing with others.
Adrianne Kartachak
I wish every educator could go through this course no matter how tenured or how strong they think their presenting style is. We learned presentation skills, effective and peaceful communication skills, life skills, and just plan people skills. Get ready for these teachers to rock your world.
