How Can Biomimicry Help You?

Did You Know…?

By understanding how wetlands work, we can design buildings to purify their own wastewater.

A nature-influenced building with low-energy systems treats and reclaims up to 52,000 gallons of wastewater per day without the use of chemicals.

By modeling itself after pollinators, businesses can strengthen the local economy and increase sustainability while growing and prospering themselves.

A Creative Industries Facility incubates new businesses, enhances the neighborhood while attracting customers and stimulating economic development.

By emulating Aspen groves, a multi-tenant facility can reduce costs of operations while strengthening programming and sharing resources.

A one-stop place with 7 city and 13 community-based groups located together creates streamlined access to services & encourages organizational collaboration.

By mimicking nature’s food web system, cross-sector partnerships can transform distribution & access to food while improving the health of people.

One grass-roots group connects with 32 businesses, 400 volunteers and partners with the city parks system to create 8 gardens providing 40,000 lbs. of produce for hunger relief, all in One Year!

By studying ecosystems, children learn how to apply systems of interdependent relationships to create solutions for challenging issues.

STEM 8 Project Based Learning curriculum focuses on solving food and agricultural issues such as food waste, packaging, distribution and energy use and presents their solutions to local experts.
