Community Engagement
  • Is your restoration project community-led or a civic brownfield project? Our signature program catalyzes community engagement with outreach, education, and strategic partnerships through workshops and trainings based on The Soil Keepers framework. 
  • Modified from our more comprehensive certification units, these trainings focus on the needs of the site and build the capacities and networks of the community. 

Projects with clients involving The Soil Keepers workshops and curriculum include Amisacho Restauración, Archeworks, Comer Youth FarmSoutheast Environmental Task Force, and Stein Learning Garden.
