Love Our Land

A Land Ethic Summit

_DSC9797 (1).jpg

Our region is one of the most biodiverse on the planet: from snow-capped volcanoes to bountiful farmland, old growth cedar forests to rocky beaches; our home is abound with natural glory and rapid development.

Spurred by our collaboration with author and educator JM Fortier, this November we are hosting Love our Land, a day long summit and dialog with our community about the future of land use in King County.

What do you love most about our land? What do you want to see survive into the future?
What actions can you take to ensure this vision?

Join Ecolibrium Farms along with Thought Leaders in a community brainstorm working towards answering these questions. We will share our unique perspectives on this topic and envision a shared future of our region. Special Guests include -

Graham Smith - Indie Wineries

Amy Moreno-Sills - PCC Farmland Trust

JM Fortier - The Market Gardener

Greta Hardin - Female Farmer Project

Roger Fernandez - native storyteller

Stephen Antupit - MetroAG Strategies

Jeff Rogers - Snoqualmie Valley Lamb

Kyle Mylius - Green Canopy

Where: The Collective

When: 10AM-6PM November 3rd, 2018

Why Hold a Summit?

The population of our region continues to increase dramatically, as does the development of our land. Like many of our partners, we believe that we can do more together than alone, and want to provide a space for collaboration and knowledge-sharing between those who live in the region:

When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.
— Aldo Leopold
  • To learn and understand the complexities of our ecosystem and environment.

  • To form commensal and symbiotic relationships with the organisms and organizations in our ecosystem and environment.

  • To give more than we take and to leave the land better than we found it by fostering biodiversity and health.

  • To protect the that which we hold dear.

When people feel comfortable to be themselves, they do their most creative thinking, speaking, and listening.
— World Cafe Model
