        Working Landscapes - Basics

        A working landscape is an area where people live and work in a way that allows the native ecosystem to be sustained. Business and social activities are done in a way that minimizes the disturbance of native plants and animals. A working landscape is an area where humans work as responsible members of a natural ecosystem. Ideally, all of the people within a working landscape are balancing their own needs with the needs of the environment. Striking that delicate balance is defined as mutual sustainability-everyone's needs are met in a way that will maintain the landscape into the future.
