Who, What & Why
We—Barb and Mike Haigwood—consult with anyone who would like to make a difference in the world. From homeowners looking to create a more nutrient-dense food supply for themselves, to farmers and land owners who want to ensure their land will be healthy for generations to come, and parents who want to free their children’s imagination and get their children involved in their own learning. We draw on our life experiences and skills and use the three ethics of permaculture: care of land, care of people and return of surplus. Read our full bio.
Feedback from a Client
"Real Life Consulting has been essential for us as we look to transition from urban professional life to sustainable farming. The team has been available at any time, providing us answers to key questions on farming approach, economic insights and perspectives, and how to actually approach this new lifestyle. Even more valuable has been the ideas RLC has inspired without being asked; drawing from their decades of experience, they patiently identified vital opportunities and liabilities we never would have expected to experience without them. Simply put, we're on our path, securely and sustainably, thanks to RLC." -Patrick S. Maryland
