We all have a vague sense that humans have a negative impact on the environment, but many of us push the thought to the backs of our minds and continue on with our days. When Evan Marks made that realization, he decided it was time to do something about it. Once he started getting involved in things like Surfrider Foundation, he learned that agriculture is a leading cause of pollution in the ocean and that’s when he got into sustainable agriculture. In this video, he takes us on a tour of The Ecology Center, his farm and resource “hut” in Orange County. He shows us that amazing things can happen when you “plant a seed of good intention,” and for that, he’s a Local Legend.
After you watch the video, head on over to theecologycenter.org to learn more about what they do and get involved in some of their upcoming events.
