our impact



In underserved communities across the world, there is minimal or no sustainability training, yet there is a desire to find solutions to protect and conserve the environment of their communities.
We are able to create greater impact because we train and empower people on-the-ground in their own communities, building a deeper sense of ownership for sustainability and regeneration. 
We believe that regenerative communities lead to a flourishing planet.
