Sustainable Communities

Community PeopleSustainable community development embraces a wide array of opportunities and options. By working in rural and urban places with policies and programs we can recognize the diversity of communities across the United States and the need for community-based action.

Through existing authorities and resources we should seek to help communities work in partnership with farmers, landowners, and others in the private sector; increase education and technical skills; connect people to the natural resource base; protect lives and property; expand infrastructure, community facilities, and technology; and coordinate involvement of stakeholders.

By fostering sustainable approaches to community development we should help to strengthen the capacity of communities to take integrated action toward improving environmental, social, and economic conditions.

ISC-Audubon is a coalition of non-profit organizations and initiatives that include The International Sustainability Council (ISC), Audubon Lifestyles, Audubon Outdoors, Planit Green, Broadcast Audubon, and the Audubon Network for Sustainability. 

Funds generated through memberships and donations are used to provide fruit & vegetable seeds, wildflower seed mix, and wildlife feed & birdseed to urban and suburban communities around the world. These seeds are used by communities to establish fruit and vegetable gardens, bird and wildlife sanctuaries, and for the beautification of urban and suburban landscapes by creating flower and native plant gardens.
