Promoting nature-based, toxic-free land care practices for the health of people, their pets, and the planet.

Living Lands

Our Living Lands program provides individualized coaching and education for private landowners, landscape designers, and maintenance professionals to ensure successful transitions from conventional, toxic methods to nature-based practices. Our first major partner is Peconic Land Trust on Eastern Long Island, where we will focus on the vital Georgica and Sagg Pond watersheds, but our individualized land care advice, workshops, and educational programs will be available to all. Together, we will work with homeowners and their landscape teams to create individualized land care programs and engage their full interest and long-term commitment to their PRFCT places.

Goals of the Living Lands program will include:

  • Improve groundwater and local waterways by reducing harmful fertilizer and pesticide runoff.
  • Improve human and pet health by reducing harmful pesticide exposure.
  • Teach landowners, landscape designers, landscapers, and gardeners about the steps they can take to encourage a healthy and biodiverse ecosystem—and in the process, create places of wonder and beauty.
  • Share success stories with the goal of inspiring more landowners to convert their properties to nature-based Living Lands.
  • Educate and encourage landscapers to provide PRFCT services and inspire environmentally minded individuals to consider careers in nature-based land care.
  • Produce materials for landowners, decision makers, students, and for media presentations and workshops.
