Peter is a lifelong student, teacher and advocate of organic farming and sustainable culture. He spent his twenties in the company of master seed growers and Permaculture designers in New Mexico and the garden island-Kauai, Hawaii. In 2001 he co-founded the pioneering green building firm Southeast Ecological Design, completed the advanced curriculum and Permaculture Teacher Training. Beginning in 2008 he conceived and established Asheville’s organic-heirloom seed company, Sow True Seed. Uniting his powers of botanical inspiration with the embodiment of the divine feminine, Peter merged with Michelle in 2016 to birth their life’s greatest work, Watershed Forest Farm.
We are a mountain farm, our driveway is steep and a bit bumpy in spots however we have never had a guest that couldn't make it it up. The farm tour is a mildly challenging hike with many breaks.
