Public Works

We foster community wellness with education and experiential learning.

Community Wellness

Ecotone was founded in 2010 on a concept for reviving the nearly lost tradition of local carpenters playing an integral role in organizing and developing for the direct needs of their community. As a small construction company, we have developed a conceptual approach to foster community wellness by organizing our work to prioritize education and experiential learning. Explore below for more information about Ecotone’s Community wellness through design, and be sure to get in touch if you’re interested in collaborating on a community wellness project!

Ecotone’s mission to support community wellness doesn’t stop at building public spaces and gardens. The health of every community hinges on the ability of its people to find fulfilling and financially-supportive careers where they can learn valuable real-world skills, skills that can then be used to give back to the community in any number of ways. Providing real-world work experience for apprentices on public works projects remains at the core of our vision, and our extensive training and certification program is the perfect starting point for aspiring designers and tradesmen to break into New York City’s design and construction industry.
