Becky Elder came to Colorado in the early 1970’s. She is well known locally for her Earth – conscious business, Blue Planet Earthscapes, an award winning organic gardening company. Certified in permaculture design, Becky co-founded Pikes Peak Permaculture in 2002 as an educational non-profit, promoting sustainable living and living with a light footprint on the planet.
Becky’s first book, Raven in the Garden, a Front Range Gardener’s Journal, 2007, is penned from many years of environmental activism and devotion to the natural world.
Ever the activist, Becky Elder now sits on the Manitou Springs City Council working for a more resilient community. Some primary focus points for her in that governmental realm are: Climate Change and Carbon Sequestration, Edible Parks, Rebuilding the Urban Forest, Local Food efforts, Tiny Houses and Workforce Housing (…more tiny houses!)
Speaking on behalf of nature led to her local tag as “The Lorax of Manitou.”
