Village Ecosystems recognizes that regulations were created to preserve the environment we love AND policy does not always allow for the creativity and best function of life. VE helps facilitate engagement with agencies that implement the legal framework for how we go about doing work on our land.

We work with Fish and Wildlife, Environmental Health, Planning departments, Regional Water Boards, the Division of Water Rights, the Army Corp of Engineers, the Coastal Commission, and other agencies that may have jurisdiction over a project.

Cannabis Farming has recently become legal in California and environmental regulation is a big part of compliance. VE helps farmers navigate the Water Board order and Agriculture Department permitting. 

It is our goal to facilitate understanding of the regulations and requirements to those who want to dig in and do the work themselves, and take the burden of permitting off the hands of those who care to focus on more interesting parts of their business.
