Conserving and Restoring Michigan Lands

From the Keweenaw to Kalamazoo, from Saginaw to Sleeping Bear, SEEDS EcoCorps Crews get first-hand experience in careers related to restoration of public and private lands, installing and maintaining ecologically regenerative landscapes, farming, and green infrastructure.

SEEDS has proudly served Michigan as a green solutions incubator and employer since 1999. In addition to our permanent teaching and consulting staff, through our EcoCorps program we also provide seasonal employment for green collar career explorers. EcoCorps crews are available for hire, and we also work cooperatively on fundraising with public and nonprofit partners to make project dreams happen!
