SHORE UP is a hands-on workshop on how to use indigenous planting and biomass found on the shore to slow down coastal erosion. It is led by Rosmarie Lohnes who shares her years of experience of successfully building Living Shoreline projects to teach homeowners steps they can take to slow the erosion of their coastal properties.
The SHORE UP initiative is a way for municipalities all over the maritimes to bring coastal erosion solutions to their communities. To become a SHORE UP community host or sponsor, get in touch with Lisa Cochrane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our mission is to share Helping Nature Heal’s niche, coastal erosion expertise widely, empowering everyone to consider sustainable, plant-based strategies for combatting coastal erosion on their private properties and also on beloved public shorelines within communities.

Our Pilot Project in St. Margaret’s Bay was a great success!
The SHORE UP Nova Scotia Pilot Project was possible with the partnership of the St. Margaret’s Bay Stewardship Association, generous funding by The Aspotogan Heritage Trust, and sponsorship by Habit Studio, Baldwin’s Nursery, Bulwark Hand Crafted Cider and Mary Stocks, a Tradewinds Realtor.
