Mission Statement

Our mission is to seek the development of socially and ecologically sustainable environments through inclusive participation. We foster projects that use holistic and thoughtful design processes, and we act as an education and networking resource.

Description

We are a collective of designers ranging from those who design educational curriculum to those who design wastewater treatment systems. We bring a holistic perspective to design challenges and help communities make durable decisions about their own future.

With the understanding that all systems are connected, we frame our work into three categories: 1) Building Community Locally: We enhance community resilience by networking fantastic educators and students of all ages together. 2) Energy & Environmental Analysis: We engage in greenhouse gas emissions monitoring and planning as well as sustainability audits, allowing a quantitative perspective on complex behavior. 3) Ecological Engineering & Design: We specialize in water systems; we think stormwater infiltration is the cat's pajamas and that wastewater has important and useful nutrients.

Our favorite work involves bringing these realms together and convening participatory processes that develop strategies for change with measurable outcomes.
