ECOLIFE Conservation in Escondido is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a world where people and nature prosper together. We approach conservation by transforming the way people grow, access, and cook food.
ECOLIFE’s international efforts focus on building life-saving stoves in rural households in Michoacán, Mexico, so families can breathe clean air and consume 60% less wood than traditional open-fire cooking. We build stoves in and around the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Here in the US, our educational programming introduces innovative agriculture and environmental science to classrooms, while our community-based aquaponic projects support sustainable food systems and increase food security. Aquaponics is the science of raising fish and plants in a recirculating system where fish waste is converted into natural fertilizer for plants. This sustainable growing method uses 90% less water and land compared to traditional agriculture, while keeping pollutants out of our food and water supply.
Learn more about us by visiting our website and signing up for our newsletter. You can also sign up for a tour of our Aquaponics Innovation Center (ours are virtual until further notice). Support us by sponsoring our golf tournament at the Rancho Bernardo Inn on July 9! We are proud members of the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce and look forward to connecting with you.
