Sustainable Livelihoods: Papermaking with Invasive Species
It is imperative to include sustainable livelihoods in any conservation endeavor. One Landscape aims
promote economic well-being in local communities. Working with area artists and artisans, regional
businesses, conservationists and others, as well as with ONE LANDSCAPE’s international collective of
scientists, entrepreneurs, and artists, we aim to promote economic well-being in local communities.
Collaborating with Blossom Sustainable Development, an organization in the Shinnecock Indian Nation
of eastern Long Island, and the expert papermaker, Susan Gosin, we conducted a workshop on
papermaking with invasive species such as Phragmites. Wc will continue this collaboration to explore
potential products and businesses using invasive species.
