It takes a community to care for our communities

Special Thanks to our Partners from the many wonderful organizations and individuals who help bring educational experiences to new curious minds.

Ways to partner with us: contribute supplies or program space, sponsor our eco programming, or collaborate to provide direct educational services to NYC communities.

Gardening & Nutrition

Whether indoors or outdoors, in containers, or in raised beds, we can grow real food in our city environments! Gardens provides many opportunities to engage the whole body and mind. We are reminded of our connection to nature. They are places where people of all ages can explore with all of their senses and learn about the science and magic of plants! Plus, we get to grow and eat yummy, healthy food!

We build cognitive connections in language arts, science, math, and social studies. We also build valuable kinesthetic abilities, as those who learn by doing and moving flourish in these environments. Educational and Skill-Building Connections

SEL & Wellness

Social Emotional Learning and Wellness is the holistic care for the body, mind, and spirit. Spending time on wellness, shifts our mindsets, and allows the body to function better. Everyone benefits when we each take care of ourselves.

Participants are then better able to engage in educational or work activities, as they develop self-awareness, self-control, self-expression, and social-cooperative skills. Join our instructors in a variety of quiet body activities, yoga, meditation, nature walks, gentle movement, and sound practices.

The study of Ethnobotany shows how humans have used plants for clothing to crafts, tools, housing, food, medicine, and furnishings. Mother Nature provides us with many colors, shapes, textures, scents, and patterns to explore.

Our workshops instill a sense of responsibility and environmental stewardship in the next generation and empower participants to be a viable part of the solution.
