The Ecological Landscaper Immersion Program (ELI) was created to empower the next generation of aspiring professional land stewards with a foundation of ecological literacy, practical landscaping and design skills, combined with personal and professional development. Graduates are able to channel their unique strengths and interests into vocations that increase the life-supporting capacity of landscapes. ELI includes hands-on experience and proactive engagements with real-world projects. From backyards to broad acre, participants gain ecological problem solving skills for cultivating resilient and integrated systems for water, soil, plants and animals. The program culminates with an individual capstone project, during which participants synthesize their skills and passions into tangible next steps in their professional development with the support of mentors – whether it’s starting or growing a business, getting a job they love, teaching these skills to others or taking their studies a step further via research and continued education.Visit Event Website >>
