Kimberly Beazer,

Founder of Beazer’s Garden Workshops

Educator, Lead Curriculum & Garden Plan Developer

A lifelong advocate for youth services, community building, resource conservation and living sustainably; driven by a deep-rooted passion to create positive change and nurture our planet. 

As a dedicated eco-educator and program manager, I am fueled by the belief that small actions can create significant change.

Join me on this journey as we become rebels for nature and forge a path towards a more sustainable future.

How it all started...

From humble beginnings as a curious child, frustrated with the “doom and gloom” mindset broadcasted in schools and on the news, I wished I could do something about it.

As a young adult, I found out I could! My curiosity led me to the world of eco-education.

I immersed myself in the world of community development through local gardens and nonprofit organizations, volunteering alongside inspiring individuals who shared my commitment to addressing the pressing social and ecological challenges we face. True ‘change-agents for nature’. Thanks to them, I learned to see the beauty in the chaos and our place in it, and found my path.

Fast forward 27 years later, I provide Eco-education and awareness through my business!

A passionate advocate for environmental education and stewardship. Empowering students of all ages to embrace sustainability through immersive experiences in NYC’s urban communities.

With a diverse background in Childhood Education, Nonprofit Management, and Journalism/Media, I have honed my skills to deliver excellence and a unique perspective.

Join me on this transformative journey as we cultivate a greener future, one garden at a time.
