Being in an area of the country where ecological land care isn’t a common practice, participating in the ELA has allowed me to network with like-minded folks from across the country. Through this, I’m able to learn and discuss with others the challenges they face (or have faced) and the methods they are using or have used in the past. It’s inspiring to learn what others are doing in the ecological land care industry and how the industry has progressed.
