The Luna moth level of recognition is the highest achievement of beyond-sustainable landscapes. It ensures that the landscape is truly regenerative, in terms of soil, climate, biodiversity, water, food, and in creating a more just society.
While most recognition programs for “sustainable landscapes” simply require a landscape to become “more” sustainable, or rather less unsustainable, Transformative Landscapes require that sites be actually sustainable in every way. Rather than just focusing on native plants, or pollinators, a transformative landscape will help regenerate every measure of land health, water, climate, biodiversity, etc.
And the Luna moth badge means a landscape has achieved a level of regeneration that only the most determined and dedicated land managers can achieve.
