Toward a New Landscape Narrative of Hope

We envision a landscape where the community that calls this place home work together to steward the landscape for resilience, biodiversity, beauty, on behalf of our children.

Regenerate Grey Bruce expands our landscape narrative of hope – the story we tell ourselves about our role in stewarding our home landscape. By highlighting our leaders of regeneration in our community, and drawing in others who feel attracted to this narrative, we build momentum to change our relationship to our land.
