Studioverde and our collaborators are passionate about sustainable and ecologically based landscape design and land management and we welcome invitations to speak at events, develop and teach courses, and lead webinars for your organization, community, or team.
Learn about the trend toward beautiful, healthy, high performing landscapes. Discover the evolving role of public art and aesthetics in creating thoughtful and provocative places for people. Understand why a sustainable landscape-based design approach for land development, campus planning, stormwater management is cost effective and creates a sense of place and community.
Or learn more about the newly launched SITESTM rating system and how a sustainable sites approach will transform your campus, property or public greenspace into something that connects people to your place and fulfills your sustainability goals.
