John & Nancy Todd

Please join Santa Barbara Permaculture Network as we celebrate our third annual Eco Hero Award honoring John & Nancy Jack Todd, pioneers in the ecological design movement. This unique and amazingly productive husband and wife team has shared a partnership journey over five decades committed to the emerging field of ecological design, which uses human ingenuity to design a future in balance with nature, while healing broken ecosystems damaged historically and by modern industrial society. Amongst many other projects, John & Nancy operate Ocean Arks International, a nonprofit research and outreach organization founded in 1982. Ocean Ark's stated mission is “to create planetary healing through promoting ecological literacy and the dissemination of vital eco-technologies”, with projects focused on the restoration of the worlds waters, using the tools of nature to heal toxic waste sites, oil spills, leaking landfills and severely damaged waterways. We are honored to have John & Nancy join us in person to receive 2023 Eco Hero Award, and a reception follows in the Lobero courtyard.
