We offer supplies, resources, workshops + inspiration for a variety of sustainable lifestyle activities such as vegetable gardening, composting, rainwater catchment, chicken keeping, canning + preserving foods, bee keeping, herbal medicine, mushroom cultivation, home dairy and more.

SMALL TERRAIN’s work is dedicated to inspiring and enabling healthy change of our built environment and personal lives, toward a more harmonious, more resilient way of modern living. Our focus is on incremental, small-scale projects in the realms of urban homesteading and sustainable urban design. Books and educational workshops that compliment the store products are also available. As the business develops, services will be added including home design consultation and community urban design services, such as small-scale stormwater mitigation projects and a neighborhood pedestrian friendly streets initiative.

Thanks for your attention. Please help spread the word amongst your communities. Even if you don’t live in Asheville, there may be indirect connections worth fostering.

Congratulations to Nat!

    An idea whose time has come – love this and can’t wait to move to Asheville & take advantage of the offerings. Making sweeping changes, although good for the individual and society, can be daunting to implement so this idea should be well received.
