OUR MISSION

We are a nonprofit organization that helps people to become better stewards of gifts naturally available to all of humanity: our bodies, our communities and our planet.

OUR VISION

A safe, calming nature walk nearby every neighborhood; communities reclaiming the wealth of generational food harvesting wisdoms; low-utility-usage homes built to be affordable for low-income families.
