Foodscaping: Satisfying the Eye and the Tummy

Jeremy Lekich’s mission is to reconnect people with their food source by growing food where they live. He achieves this by offering creative food solutions through landscaping.

His custom designs allow food to be grown in a way that is pleasing to the eye and taste buds, a fusion of aesthetics and function in the landscape. Jeremy has designed foodscapes for clients in the Asheville and Nashville areas. His passion is growing food of all kinds and doing it in a way that is attractive and healthy.

Jeremy was born and raised in Nashville. He received his Bachelor of Science from Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, NC, where his focus was on plants and systems design. While at Warren Wilson Jeremy studied Permaculture and Foodscaping and earned his Permaculture Design Degree.

Permaculture is a branch of ecological design, ecological engineering, and environmental design which develops sustainable architecture and self-maintained horticultural systems modeled from natural ecosystems.

He is a community resilience enthusiast and believes in the power of a localized economy and an inspired well fed community. Some of his profit is used to build foodscapes in under-served areas of Nashville. He does this with the belief that everyone should have easy access to healthy, fresh, affordable and beautiful food.
