I'm Susan Cousineau, and I help create resilient, biodiverse ecosystems. My husband Laine and I teach and practice permaculture on 1/4 acre in southern California, while parenting and caring for his elderly mom. We raise rabbits, chickens, ducks (and muscovies), pigeons, and quail, along with several hundred species of mostly edible plants, many natives, and a growing plethora of wild birds, insects, pollinators and soil biota.
On the surface, I get excited about helping folks integrate animals, from companions to livestock, bugs, worms and birds, into their landscapes.
My deeper 'why', though, is integrating ecology into our daily lives: from helping folks make better choices for the planet, to developing regenerative business and working to transition our global agriculture using the principles and practices of agroecology.
