Elevate Ecology is a sustainability school committed to co-creating an environment that allows humanity to reach its highest potential. With demonstration gardens, research experiments, workshops, coaching, and classes, Elevate Ecology is a hub of information and collaboration that is transforming the way we live.
Elevate Ecology recognizes the interwoven relationship that exists between the individual and their environment, so in the Summer of 2011, we are offering a dynamic series of classes and events for you to help us envision and actualize a just and sustainable world, today.
The recent invention from the Elevate labs, Elevate Ecology is celebrating the grand opening of their community garden and learning center. “The Parkour Permaculture Play Day was such an incredible day for everyone!”, they say in their June 14th email announcement. “We are so grateful for the amazing people who came to learn and dance and play on our sacred land. We look forward to the next Play Day with all of you!! Stay tuned for videos from the event!”
The Elevate Ecology is lead by two inspiring individuals. Jeska Summerfield is a hands on, do-it-yourselfer. She’s a permaculture designer & organic garden coach. In 2003 she co-created the Ser La Causa program in Mexico, which trained communities in urban microfarming & ecological restoration. Jeska is currently co-founder of the Elevate Ecology sustainable Living Academy, where she teaches permaculture, organic gardening & sustainable living skills. Kevin Jones is a philosopher, social ecologist, land-use planner, and green consultant. In 2003 he co-created the Ser La Causa program in Mexico, which trained communities in urban microfarming & ecological restoration. Kevin is lead designer and co-creator of the Elevate Ecology sustainable Living Academy, a suburban sustainability project in Ojai, CA.
They offer advise on organic gardening, landscape maintenance, and irrigations systems. They can help with what, where and when to plant, companion planting, container gardens, composting, easy organic pest control, and drip irrigation. The session is aimed at people who are new to gardening, or people who would like to make changes and need advice. Their initial consultation usually takes an hour. If there are extensive design issues, you might be in need of our landscape design service. Organic Garden Coaching is $80/ hour, and includes guidance from both Jeska & Kevin.
