Our world is designed by us, for us and most of the time without us knowing. Sometimes the way our landscapes and communities are designed don’t work for us.

This is where Aurora Edible Designs steps in.

Want more food in your backyard? Want a low maintenance yard? Want to learn more sustainability skills? Aurora Edible Designs has flexible options to suit your goals.

Aurora Edible Designs breaks down the barriers and helps you to arrive at solutions that take care of people and the earth.

...beautiful places, places where you feel yourself, places where you feel alive." Christopher Alexander, A Pattern Language

Melissa helped us to see the potential of all the various spaces on our site, and the relationships between them. Her design formed the basis of the Ironhorse Ranch as it is today - a place of enjoyment, creativity, and nourishment for our household as well as the countless neighbours who make visits a frequent part of their routine.

Melissa Flint does a variety of workshops for all ages and abilities. Melissa teaches permaculture, gardening, design, sustainability and environmental education. Melissa’s classes are engaging, fun and empowering.
