“Erica certainly changed their (participants) perception of what sustainability is and demonstrated how important story, personal experience, mindfulness are to this concept.” Tania Karamitos Program Co-ordinator Victorian Schools Garden Awards, 2016
“…Erica undertook significant preparation in the lead up to the event – taking on board all our requirements to deliver an extremely well thought out plan and facilitation for the night. Feedback from the event was very positive, with the participatory process encouraging a renewed sense of enthusiasm and energy for environmental action.” Sian Gleeson, Environmental Sustainability Officer, Banyule City Council, June 2017
” I thought Erica’s presentation was amazing, participants were hanging on off every word.” Gwen Michener, Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, 2016

Upcoming workshops and programs
HumaNature Connect is currently in Darwin for the dry season 2017 (May – December) but available for workshops down south in this time.
City of Darebin, Community Sustainability Leaders Training (October 2017). Creating meaningful projects of passion
This workshop is designed to explore the role of participant’s connection to nature in bringing them to a point of further action. This awareness serves as a compass to guide project design and ensure that it is actually contributing to the goal of restoring health and wellbeing to the natural system in the best way it can, in the area of participant’s passion.
“By inquiring about the human-nature relationship as individuals and communities, we come to ‘know’ that we intrinsically belong to this one ecological system. This wisdom can lead us to act in caring ways that support our collective wellbeing and ensure a thriving future. See nature – see self in nature – see nature in wellbeing and sustainability”
