Regenerative Landscapes and the Climate Crisis draws upon Nature's processes to highlight the growing climate crisis, bringing solutions to the surface, and empowering communities to protect natural, living systems.
Embracing real-life solutions, accessible to homeowners, garden enthusiasts, communities, municipalities, and landscape professionals, this timely and informative presentation immediately engages the audience to provide a blueprint for inspired actions.
It has been our honor and pleasure to share our message at the Los Angeles County Arboretum, The Huntington Gardens, The Davis Village Homes, Aquarium of the Pacific, Tree People, and many more across the state of California. We currently collaborate with Pasadena Water and Power in regenerative design, implementation and community workshops to bring about the changes we all wish to see.
1. Understanding that current, standard practices are bad for the environment.
2. Connecting viewers to old as dirt solutions.
3. Proof of concept - how we are making changes and inviting others to do the same.
