We design and create California native plant restoration gardens that support wildlife in the urban environment.

WE BELIEVE that each garden can serve as an island for biodiversity - a landing place for birds, bees and butterflies.  With enough of these islands, we  create a corridor that supports life throughout the urban landscape.


We are open? as you feel comfortable.  Mask up or fully vaccinated folks- we want to support you all.

What a year it has been.  I don't even know what to say.  We've had gracious support from a small group of volunteers and building.

Finally can have tours and workdays again.  First Friday's in the SRJC landscapes and Last Mondays at our Sebastopol Corridor Projet.
