How can society and nature thrive together? Why should humans care about the state of urban ecosystems? The Flux Frontier offers the exploratory grounds to ask such questions. Through day to day management, the Flux Frontier is a space that will emphasize and value the kind of knowledge that can only be gained through practice, daily observations and trial and error.
Our school is very fortunate to have such a large tract of land to work with and explore the question of how to create positive and life affirming interactions between humans and the natural world in an urban landscape. The majority of humans now live in an urban setting and therefore questions of what makes humans thrive in an urban ecosystem are more relevant than ever. Our hope is that the Flux Frontier will become an educational centre for urban ecology. A space where humans, young and old, can learn about ecology and the importance of growing food.
