About Living Lands
We work with nature to co-create green spaces that protect pollinator habitat, enhance biodiversity and preserve environmental integrity.
According to the World Health Organization, biodiversity is a key environmental determinant of human health. Biodiversity and human health are interlinked in various ways.
Therefore, all of the world is our home, and interconnected, so when we design for the well-being of all species we design for our own well-being, health and quality of life too.
About Our Founder, CynTHIA
Cynthia has over 20 years of experience working with indigenous plants within the Central Alberta region.
Her work in the green roof industry has a focus on biodiverse green roofs; roofs that are designed and planted specifically to increase local plant diversity and provide habitat (food and shelter) for wildlife.
She has worked with counties, municipalities, schools and colleges providing pollinator awareness presentations and workshops, creating pollinator gardens + trails, and building hands-on student led projects.
