Meet your Mentor, Matt Lebon
Owner, Custom Foodscaping & The Foodscaper
Matt is most passionate about creating magical food moments. He is driven by the belief that food connects us all. By cultivating food crops with a reverence for Mother Earth he believes we can begin to heal our bodies and the land. Matt got his start with farming as a Peace Corps volunteer in Paraguay, where he was initially bit by the gardening bug. He went on to study ecological design and work on several farms. For five seasons Matt worked at the EarthDance Organic Farm School until he left his role of farm manager in 2017.
Matt has helped to grow his company, Custom Foodscaping, team to 9 team members. In his 7th year leading the design and install team for CF, last year's revenue topped $650K. More than anything, Matt is proud of the caring team he works with and the supportive clients who allow Custom Foodscaping to do this earth-centered work.
