We partner to grow a restorative economy by rebuilding healthy ecosystems, restoring habitat for plants and wildlife, and reconnecting our border communities to the land through shared learning.
We envision connected borderlands where rivers flow, plants, wildlife and cultures thrive, and communities develop an inclusive restorative economy where a sense of place inspires a sense of purpose.
A restorative economy creates a synergy between human economic activity and natural systems to build a more prosperous and socially-just local economy. Standing in contrast to an extractive economy, which depletes resources, degrades ecological processes, and decreases biodiversity. A restorative economy works to regenerate resources, enhance processes and increase biodiversity.
