Wildsight works locally, regionally and globally to protect biodiversity and encourage sustainable communities in Canada’s Columbia and Rocky Mountain regions.
Wildsight’s approach is unique. We not only work to shape and influence land-use decisions, but we guide practice and steward change on the ground. We work with industry, scientists and all levels of government, including First Nations. We partner with other local, provincial, national and international conservation organizations to achieve our goals.
For 30 years, Wildsight has been recognized as a leader in large-scale conservation, sustainable community initiatives and environmental education. While our work focuses on the Kootenay region, and has received recognition from the communities in which we work, we are renowned throughout the province and across Canada for our effective conservation programs, excellence and innovation in all that we do.
At our heart, we are a grassroots organization, harnessing our power from the people whose lives affect and are affected by our work. We strive to inspire a conservation ethic in our children and in our communities so that the future leaders of tomorrow will be equipped to deal with the challenges of sustainability.
Community Empowerment through Sustainable and Bio-Intensive Agriculture is a community based organization located near Nairobi Kenya and in its initial stage of development.
After I returned to Kenya from my 8 month GROW BIOINTENSIVE internship, I started to establish CESBA. Our mission is to empower small scale farmers with sustainable, environmentally friendly Biointensive methods and practices that will lead to resilient and empowered communities and improved livelihood and health.
We focus on training small scale farmers in Ongata Rongai and Kiserian division of the larger Kajiado county with sustainable farming techniques so as they can grow their own food to feed themselves and sell the surplus for economic empowerment. We train and then keep close contact with farmers to ensure their success.
We address community food insecurity issues and economic empowerment, and teach individual families to take responsibility for what they grow and eat. We strive to reach and empower 1000 households, create market links for all the farmers produce and involve youth in agriculture projects.
Small scale farmers are responsible for feeding the world, so empowering them with the sustainable farming methods and linking them directly to markets eliminating the middle men who exploit farmers means more food secure and economically empowered community.
