We seek to nurture our relationships with plants so that we may cultivate a more peaceful, equitable, and regenerative planet.
An initiative to empower our communities to teach each other, learn together, and remember our collective knowledge of plants and our reciprocal relationships. Through this work we aim to better understand, preserve and protect our natural communities. Our programs are committed to community science, environmental justice, and fostering engagement in and collaboration with historically marginalized and POC communities.
An initiative dedicated to cultivating seed sovereignty for our region. Our vision is rooted in climate resilience, ensuring access to culturally relevant seeds, and building an equitable and just food system. We strive to nurture a future where our communities have control over their seeds, fostering sustainable agricultural practices, and promoting local resilience.
An initiative dedicated to supporting and creating community-relevant green spaces. We recognize the vital role of these spaces in enhancing community health, fostering cultural sharing, addressing environmental justice, and promoting equitable food access. By collaboratively working with local residents, organizations, local government, and other stakeholders, we ensure that each space is tailored to meet the unique needs and aspirations of the community. These vibrant and inclusive green spaces become hubs for physical activity, recreation, and meaningful connections with nature, nurturing the well-being and resilience of all community members.
Making local, pesticide-free produce accessible to all people in our community is the core mission of our program. Through food distributions, free farm stands, and strategic programs that reduce hurdles to access this food, we aim to bridge the gap between locally-grown produce and historically underserved communities. Additionally, we take pride in growing food on our own urban farm and providing Farm Shares to the community, promoting a deeper connection to the source of their sustenance. Our collaborative approach involves working closely with community-based organizations, local governments, stakeholders, and community members to create equitable and sustainable food systems.
