A Call to duty
When we care about the places we live, our shared values rebuild human capital, mutual respect and stronger communities!
We are educators, gardeners and green contractors helping New York City residents reconnect with their natural environment. NYC & State MWBE/MBE registered.
As an environmental educator, I teach about our interdependent relationship with nature. We need to understand, and take care of both the green, (our parks, trees, gardens and other open land areas we share) and grey (buildings, sidewalks, lots) infrastructure of our cities.
Over the last 18 years, I’ve worked with wonderful eco-based organizations including, The New York Botanical Garden, Sustainable South Bronx, the Greystone Foundation, Hudson River Clearwater, CityParks Foundation, the Bronx River Alliance, and the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, to name a few.
I’m a registered NYC MWBE, a Dept. of Education Vendor, and a geek for the form and function of green infrastructure and how these simple techniques improve our communities.
