The question which must be addressed...is not how to care for the planet, but how to care for each of the planet's millions of human and natural neighbourhoods, each of its millions of small pieces and parcels of land, each one of which is in some precious and exciting way different from all of the others."
- Wendell Berry
Jess Bossert, Rainwater Specialist
Jess has had a diverse career with more than twenty years of leadership and project management experience in the public and private sector. He has always been fascinated by water, but a passion was born in 2005 on a two-year posting at the Canadian High Commission in Nairobi, Kenya. Over this period, Jess traveled extensively throughout the ecologically and geographically diverse region of East Africa, gaining a sound appreciation for the impact that water (or lack thereof) has on the environment and the people that live in it. Jess's first rainwater harvesting system was installed in 2006 in a small village near Kisumu in Eastern Kenya.
Following years of working within large corporate organizations and government, Jess became convinced of the power of small-scale private enterprise to make meaningful change in the world. A lifetime gardener, outdoor enthusiast and avid part-time farmer, Jess has a genuine love of nature and a desire to leave the world a little better than he found it.
Jess has a deep commitment to professional excellence and is an active member of the Amercian Rainwater Catchment Systems Association (ARCSA) and Canadian Association for Rainwater Management (CANARM).
