How Earth Partnership Works
Earth Partnership collaborates with diverse communities to create vibrant outdoor learning spaces using a curriculum-based 10-step ecological restoration process. Through facilitated relationship-building and dialogue, communities identify their shared stewardship vision and the ways EP can help make it a reality.
Restoration education training is made available to a variety of learners through teacher professional development, youth programming, and family and community engagement.
To engage educators and learners of all ages and backgrounds in community-based ecological restoration for healthy environments.
For communities across the world to be actively engaged in ecological restoration that connects people to the land and each other through a commitment to stewardship.
