Amber Burton

Amber’s passion for the environment beams out of her every action. Whether she is promoting watershed stewardship of the Saskatchewan River Basin, coordinating vermicomposting workshops, or engaging in many other environmental organizing activities; Amber’s spirit and dedication are strong.

She has an intense interest in bridging the gap between city, humans and nature. This has driven her to be involved in such things as the local urban agriculture movement, re-wilding urban space through guerilla gardening, rebuilding the public commons and learning about new ways cities can become more ‘sustainable’ in their built environmental and social infrastructure.

In the future, Amber wishes to explore offering accessible environmental education programs as well as initiatives to encourage more sustainable spaces in our community. When not fighting for environmental rights, Amber can be found putting on her gloves and kickboxing. Not to mention, she’s also an aspiring urban bee-keeper and ukulele strummer.
