that's familiar with permaculture, farming etc.  I know several, but they don't speak soil............
If anyone knows of a good designer, we're in desperate need since our website is truly terrible.
thanks!

Hi Marianne;

I'm a freelance graphic designer and a permaculture nut! How handy is THAT?

Seriously, though. I can whip you up a purdy website, and a cool logo. I generally use Weebly to create websites, but I have looked into Squarespace and I'm sure I can work with it. I charge $24/hr, or we can work out a flat fee if you prefer.

Here are some websites and logos I've created for my clients:

www.bleumers.com
www.casadobroscontracting.com
www.centuryoakbedandbreakfast.com (almost done)
www.saltnation.co
www.tomstopgundrivertraining.com
www.topscorebattingaid.com.au

You can also see more of my work in my (woefully in need of updating!) online portfolio at here  Click on the categories at the top to see a variety of design work.

Okay, so take a cruise through my portfolio and if you like what you see, I look forward to hearing from you!
And if you click the link in my signature line, you can see pictures of my own little slice of paradise.

Cheers
Tracy

Hi Marianne,

Are you looking for a website that looks better, or are you looking for a website that helps get your message out?

Last year, I help Kelly and Abi (fellow permies) with their website at:
www.Cloud9Farms.com

It also uses SquareSpace. I am also in love with permaculture and working on my own homestead.

There is more about Cloud 9 Farms on Permies here:
Could 9 Farms

Our approach would be marketing first:
- what are you trying to accomplish with your website
- who is the audience/customer and what do they want
- how do we connect with more customers (visibility & content)

I specialize in things like search engine optimization, Adwords, email marketing, responsive web design and Google analytics. I can also do a bit of design and photography as needed.

I am open to barter for anything useful to my family, or we can trade cash if you prefer.

Tracy's work also looks great, so if you already decided to work with her, I am sure you will get a great website
