On this page you will find examples of our work in support of agribusiness and other enterprises. As with other GreenQuest initiatives, these outcomes emerged from fields rich with experience and are nurtured organically. Our inputs are the ideas, dreams and expectations of our grower clients.
Our work is driven by a commitment to the triple bottom line: people, planet and profit. We invite you to contact Mike if you have a project that can use an outside perspective or special expertise.

We are honored to walk with each of them on their unique green quest.
