Our Team

We have been a worker-owned cooperative since 2013. All employees are on a ownership track once they work for us for one full season. We are no longer hiring for the 2019 season, but we are still offering educational internships. If you are interested, please be in touch.



Evelyn Lane

Lead Designer & Project Manager                                                                                                             

As our Lead Designer, Evelyn considers each project through the lens of human and ecological relationships. Before getting her Masters in Landscape Design at the Conway School, she worked with nature-based education programs, including White PineWild Earth, and Youth Conservation Corps, building her knowledge of ecological design on personal relationships with plants and ecosystems.



Ashley Schenk

Operations Manager & Marketing Manager                                                        

As our Operations Manager, Ashley turns our designs into reality, merging art and permaculture in installation, natural building, and hardscape design. Ashley also builds earthen "cob" ovens throughout the Pioneer Valley, including at Yestermorrow Design/Build School. For more information about his ovens, visit earthenovens.com or read about his work in Edible Pioneer Valley Magazine.

Ashley is currently a homesteader in Montague Center, where he grows a large garden, tends his orchard, and co-parents two beautiful babies.
