Eco-Landscape Mastery School Student Showcase

A celebration of community, innovation and a sharing of ideas

We have gathered some examples of Eco-Landscape Mastery School students who are putting their learning and inspiration to work in different ways.

This is regenerative design in action.

We are so proud of them and the work they are doing in their communities.

Why have you chosen regenerative/ ecolgical design as a path for your life?

It lights me up like nothing else.

How else do you wish to serve your community?

I want to help foster a community where as many people as possible have “magical moments” interacting with locally grown food. It’s been my experience that magical moments around food have the greatest potential to positively influence ecological and human health.

What results have you seen applying what you’ve learned in the ELM School to your work and your life?

The ability to present myself as a professional with more condence.

Hatchett & Seed - Edible Landscapes

Where are you currently living and what are the bio regions/areas you serve with your work?

We live and work in the traditional territory of the Coast Salish people, specically the Lekwungen and WSÁNEC territory, currently known as Victoria BC. This is a primarily Garry Oak and Douglas Fir ecosystem, on the Southern portion of Vancouver Island, Canada.

Why have you chosen regenerative/ ecolgical design as a path for your life?

We’ve chosen regenerative design as a life path because it offers tangible solutions to issues such as climate change, food insecurity, and land management. We like applying our training & experience directly within our bio-region, and often even our own neighborhood.

Describe one or two problems in the world that you are solving with the services you offer?

1. The landscapes that surround our homes, schools, community centers, and hospitals are, for the most part, completely under-serving us. They are a drain on resources & fossil fuel energy, produce little to no tangible value and do not foster biodiversity. We can do better. Edible, ecological landscapes are an amazing solution!

2. The farmland surrounding us has seen measurable decreases in ecological productivity. Bio-diversity, soil carbon, water storage capacity & soil fertility are declining. We have solutions to grow food while improving these metrics for future generations. Regenerative agriculture is viable, scalable and ready for implementation.

What results have you seen applying what you’ve learned in the ELM School to your work and your life?

The ELM course and given us the condence and the blueprint to see the future more clearly. There is so much value packed into this course and we really appreciate the integrity that Erik & his team demonstrate. Simple things, the language and tone of the discourse displays both humility and strong leadership. Thank you!
