Nick Didomenico

Animal Expert & Drylands Specialist
Hailing from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Nick is a regenerative designer, farmer, and builder. While exploring the vast ecosystems of the Peruvian Amazon, he discovered Permaculture design working to establish food systems in an off-grid community. Inspired by indigenous culture and ancient farming practices, Nick is working passionately to design the future of living systems. In 2015, he began restoring a dry and barren parcel of land north of Boulder, now Elk Run Farm and Homestead, where he lives with his partner Marissa. Along with a blooming forest garden, vegetable production, and staple grain crops, he raises sheep, pigs, chickens, and ducks to build soil and rejuvenate the landscape. They grow thousands of fruiting trees that were established without any supplemental irrigation using techniques developed on the land.
