OUR MISSION

To be courageous and uncompromising in creating new system dynamics of

ECOLOGY, EDUCATION & EMPLOYMENT

for true social and environmental impact.

What We Do

Soul has remained hidden in our mechanical world for too long.

We add soul to everything we create.

Our BiG journeys provide educational and employment opportunities which inspire the creator and entertainer within us all.

We work in natural harmony to honor and care for all living things.

By staying inquisitive and looking first to nature as our guide, we emulate living systems to solve BiG human problems.
