"Creating conditions conducive to life is not optional; it’s a rite of passage for any organism that manages to fit in here over the long haul."

-Janine Benyus, founder, Biomimicry 3.8

Conducive is a women-owned real estate development firm. We believe in the power of environmental restoration and climate change adaptation as a means to build resilient and vibrant communities. We have expertise in real estate, land use planning, renewable energy development, architectural and ecological design, construction management, product commercialization, public policy, and strategic planning. 

Our model clusters residential neighborhoods on productive farms, known as Agrihoods. Inspired by both the slow food movement and the shift in farming to use regenerative practices that grow nutrient-dense food, rebuild topsoil, increase biodiversity, and mitigate the effects of drought and flood. 

We believe that climate change gives us both the urgency and the opportunity to unite toward leading a healthy life that has a light footprint on the earth. It is also the most powerful link between social, economic and historic challenges the world over. We believe that we are only as strong as our weakest link, and right now, our weakest link is in seeing that we are all related and that are designed to address our challenges differently - diversity is our superpower. This is why Conducive is building places for people to live and gather so that together, we can experience the deep satisfaction of healing ourselves and our planet.
