Hello! We are Noel and Ann, a couple with over 30 years of combined experience in web design, graphic design, content development, web development, and photography.
Noel obtained a master’s degree in Computer Science and has worked for over 20 years in website design and development for a variety of businesses from large companies to independent artists. Ann holds a master’s in English and established her career in content marketing and communications at corporate and non-profit organizations.
In 2016 we both left our hectic, suburban life in search of a deeper connection to nature and community.
We independently apprenticed on various farms throughout the Pacific Northwest, gaining valuable experiences and skills for living in harmony with our environment. We learned to nourish our body and spirit through homegrown food and flowers.
Eventually we landed in Williams, Oregon and have chosen the beautiful Applegate Valley as our home, where we are starting a permaculture homestead. We are growing many flowers, vegetables, fruits, nuts and herbs for our small family. If you’d like to follow along with us on our homesteading journey, please check out our blog and join our monthly enewsletter, where Ann documents our growing seasons and abundance through her artful eye for photography.
Since going back to the land, our lifestyle has changed for the better.
And as we become acquainted with our community, we found that the skills from our past lives are valuable to helping farmers, therapists, local businesses and nonprofit organizations establish and grow their online presence.
We love being able to serve our community, knowing that our work helps local businesses expand their reach, attract more customers, and streamline their processes.
We feel very fortunate to be able to balance our lives with meaningful, rewarding work while also spending time outdoors, tending to our garden and replenishing our spirits with nature’s gifts.
