About the Owner/Developer
Michael is an organic farmer who has been working his organic farm in Effingham County, Georgia for the last 15 years. The land has been in his family since the late 1700’s.
Michael’s day job is landscape supervisor for the Buildings and Grounds Department with the city of Savannah where he designs landscapes and irrigation systems. Michael has used skills acquired in this position to design the orchards and garden areas as a model homestead for local food production. Michael designed the house pictured on this website. Most of the wood used in construction was grown in Effingham County and was milled in Chatham County.
When Michael is not gardening or working his day job he can be seen in public playing guitar as seen above playing for the Imperial sugar refinery benefit concert.
