Lunch & Learns | Workshops

Want to learn how biomimicry can inform your industry? From architecture to business management and product design to corporate culture, nature has evolved patterns and  strategies for cultivating community while also building with minimal energy and materials using green chemistry.

We provide a comprehensive dive into biomimicry, learning not just about, but from nature with a new lens of discovery.  We’ll take you deep into the design of life from a functional perspective, to better understand how contextual pressures overtime have shaped not only physical form, but process and ecosystem as well. To understand how nature is solving the same challenges we are grappling at today, with great success using an evolved elegance unrivaled by us humans, is the ultimate deliverable in this flexible learning format.     

From corporate professionals to grade school students, we serve a wide audience and can customize an appropriate learning format on demand. Contact us to discuss your learning goals, whether it’s to engage in a team building exercise, learn more about biomimicry and how this discipline may be incorporated into your design process, management style or course curriculum, or if you just want to learn more about nature!

Guided Walks & Activities

What better way to practice biomimicry than to use the great outdoors as your “classroom.” Explore a new rugged trail or visit your local park, get to know your flora and fauna through immersive experiences, maybe even practice a little forest bathing, whatever your fancy… just find a way to GET OUTSIDE!
