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.
