Through design, research, and projects, Landscape for Humanity creates spatial changes that support social and environmental justice with landscape architecture. Their Food-Energy-Water (FEW) approach aims to increase self-sufficiency through natural resources. For example, designing edible landscapes, creating sustainable portable water supplies, and providing flexible solar design. The Landscape for Humanity (L4H) non-profit works closely with the L4H Lab at the University of Oregon. The collaboration implements design research and education to support local communities. L4H works with Opportunity Village Eugene to create landscape systems for transitional communities, as well as the Emerald Village Eugene to build community gardens. An additional project is in Lima, Peru, where L4H works with a local Container-Based Sanitation provider to develop adequate sanitation and public green spaces for communities in Lima.
