We can no longer think of culture and nature as separate and at odds. We need more than “preservation” in our relationship with nature. We need integration. To us the choice is not “Development” versus “Conservation”. We offer a way of thinking that is a ‘both/and’ approach. This allows us to plan for a growing population while balancing the development and the natural resources that support us, and which we in turn can sustain.

"Cultivate has proven that they are the right sized team for us. They are small enough to know the details of our projects, they are managed in a way that there is never a bottleneck and they really know their business of land planning and design. What that gives us is consistency."
"Amie is highly collaborative across many disciplines early in the process which helps
shape a vision that goes beyond the typical solution. This helps make sure that the plan is differentiated and based in deep market insights."
"Amie MacPhee and Cultivate are thoughtful, creative, design and planning
professionals that help stakeholders find common ground solutions to
protecting our region's sense of place."
"Cultivate brought fresh thinking to us and they have the same level of passion for the
project as our team. It is tough to define exactly, but it is great to see what comes out of
the collaboration of two creative teams like this working together."
Despite the best of intentions, conventional planning studies frequently overlook some of the most important aspects of a community that make it a special place. This concern was the driving force for local officials and residents in the small valley... to devise a more creative means of identifying the features most needy and worthy of protection. Basic to their approach was the recognition that many times these important elements are either too obvious or too subtle to be noticed until they are gone.
