Our mission is to restore and preserve nature in urban environments through landscape projects that engage, educate, and empower the local community.
We do this by helping low-income communities create what we call "MiniNature Reserves" and "Community Nurseries." A MiniNature Reserve is a native garden in a public park, school, parkway, neighborhood, or small business storefront. A Community Nursery grows native plants for these gardens and sells them to the public to fund our work. In addition, Community Nurseries double as a green spaces and free community education centers.
MiniNature Reserve is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit
