Through place-based teaching and learning, we ensure that our work honors local knowledge and needs and directly benefits our communities
The Borderlands Restoration Leadership Institute creates accessible entry points for all to have a hand in tending the places in which they live, and the technical and leadership skills to do so, wherever they are, so that everyone can contribute to the larger, infinite project of a sustainable Restoration Economy. Community members and visitors are welcome to attend our workshops and courses. Youth in the local community can engage in the Borderlands Earth Care Youth program, while university students might participate in the Field School. Interns have the opportunity to work, learn and give back through our thematic Project Streams. Fellowships are available for those who have shown a commitment to ecological restoration by engaging with the Institute, mentoring interns, and designing and leading projects.
