Consulting Eduction Facilitation Training Talks
Nature offers numerous models of sustainability. Just pick any species that has been around for 50-60 million years and observe what it does right. The secrets to adaptation and evolution and hence sustaining as a human race lie clearly in understanding how natural systems work.
Edible Landscapes, Community Gardens, Permaculture, Community Supported Agriculture, Wildlife Habitat Enhancement, Restoration, and Conservation of Open Space can all be incorporated into any form of development. Balancing development and working “with ” Nature allows natural systems to adapt and evolve and humans to be a part of the system.
I have worked on a variety of projects weaving human needs into Nature’s needs and creating sustainable projects from helping to develop Eco-tourism
in Hawaii and island communities to assisting Communities in visioning their sustainable future, developing Stewardship and Habitat Ordinances for County governments, creating wildlife corridors through inter-connective trail systems, setting up visual tax credits for open space and creating co-marketing partnership to protect nature and assist businesses.
For many years I facilitated environmental interaction programs – (EcoVision Associates and Natural Encounters( 1982- 1993)
helping both adults and children connect with Nature and learn the values of understanding our habitat and home.
From helping with wildlife rehabilitation and mining reclamation to designing habitats for interpretive museums and conducting education programs, I have worked on projects for over 35 years both professionally, as well as donating thousand of hours to assist people, businesses, organizations, governments and communities helping to create a sustainable vision of humans living with Nature and sharing habitat.
