About Us

We work to progress community-scale solutions to some of the biggest challenges of our time – Climate Change, Habitat Fragmentation, Biodiversity Loss, Wildlife, Water, Waste, and anything else that comes up or comes our way. We work independently and with others to connect people with nature and build more sustainable communities.

Every member of our small but dedicated team has the opportunity to create change from within the programs they work on. Whether inspiring future generations to care about the environment, helping people grow local organic food, or supporting the community to reduce waste, we find ways to connect with the things people care about and focus on finding shared values as a route to changing behaviours and shifting unsustainable cultural norms.
