About Fred Tanner

My wife (Mary Beth) and I own and operate Cedar House Inn and Yurts, an eco friendly bed and breakfast inn and permaculture demonstration site in the North Georgia mountains.

We have owned and operated the inn since 2003 and have promoted and educated guests and the public in living in a sustainable manner. In 2010 we both completed our PDC's and have been developing an extensive swale system, a large organic vegetable garden using sheet mulching techniques and much more.

Since 2003 we have also planted over 300 trees and bushes to attract wildlife and reduce our carbon footprint. Now we are planting fruit and berry bushes/trees to create an edible forest garden.

Fred has a BA degree in Biology and a graduate degree in administration. My wife Mary Beth has a BA in education. Fred taught on the college/university level and Mary Beth in elementary school.

We plan to offer workshops on the inn property and other locations through our permaculture consulting business, Permaculture Lifestyles.
