Leadership Group Facilitation
The Landcare Center is a collaboration of organizations dedicated to developing the landcare movement and industry’s capacity. Sustainable land management (including agriculture, forestry, landscaping, and associated activities) aims to improve the quality of our green infrastructure by improving it.
Landcare’s emphasis on cautious, active, and profitable land management provides a strong tool for communities to sustain and maintain their environmental infrastructure: 1) landcare helps keep working lands lucrative, healthy, and privately owned, 2) managing working lands as part of a landcare program helps pay for restoration and maintenance while also contributing to the regional economy.
Working landscapes, such as forests and farms, not only produce commercial and specialty goods that contribute to regional economies, but also promote eco-tourism while maintaining functioning ecosystems that provide a variety of services such as carbon storage, water filtration, and wildlife habitat. Working landscapes are the backbone of a region’s green infrastructure because private land ownership patterns
Sustainable construction and green neighborhood policies assist communities and consumers in preserving and utilizing their green infrastructure.
