Our Values

Our mission is to create a brighter, cleaner, healthier, and more abundant future for our community.

We achieve this through three core programs that embody our commitment to environmental stewardship and community well-being:

    • Litter Cleanup and Environmental Restoration: We are dedicated to the preservation of our natural surroundings. Through tireless efforts, we clean litter from our streets, parks, and waterways. By restoring the beauty and health of our environment, we ensure that future generations can enjoy clean and thriving spaces.
    • Forests of the Future: We believe in nourishing both the land and the people. Our greening programs focus on soil enrichment, planting sustainable, regenerative food forests that not only provide fresh, organic produce but also serve as a model for community resilience. We are sowing the seeds of a more sustainable and abundant food supply for all.
    • Community Gleaning and Food Redistribution: No one in our community should go hungry. Through our gleaning initiatives, we rescue surplus produce from local backyards, farms, markets, diverting it from waste to those in need. By connecting surplus with demand, we contribute to food security and improved nutrition, reduce food waste, and foster a stronger sense of community.

At, we envision a world where nature thrives, bellies are full, and communities flourish. Together, we are the driving force behind positive change, fostering a sustainable, equitable, and vibrant future for all.

Join us in our mission to empower our community through sustainable action and make a lasting impact today, tomorrow, and for generations to come.
