Ecological Strategy

We assess the ecological and social context of your property and provide suggestions for how you might use your land and buildings to care for creation and serve the poor. We also provide an Opportunities Map and Action Plan with next steps to guide you in the implementation of these strategies, such as simple management changes and a list of organizations that can help with further implementation.
