To inspire and share ideas of living a nature-led life in pursuit of creative, sustainable and just solutions for society and the environment.

What is a Nature-led life?

Your place in the world starts with your place in nature. What you do has impact. How can you help save the environment if you don’t feel like a part of it? The world doesn’t need a hero. It needs communities of people willing to make a broader impact for the sake of all living things. Ask yourself, how can I do this job/task/pursuit/life/trip to the grocery store in a way that benefits more than just myself? Is it so bad if only moss grows over there, or the bushes aren’t perfectly manicured? Can you go to the grocery store once a week instead of everyday? Can you stop buying so much “stuff” whatever it may be?
