To support native desert habitat restoration, sustainable living practices, and community interdependence, through educating communities on: the importance of our connection with the environment, the impact we have on our natural environment within our communities, the importance of growing and eating from local sources, and promoting the healing of our planet and its people through: community gardening, horticultural/animal therapy, creative expression, stewardship, and service. At-risk (special needs, handicapped, elderly, low income, displaced children, and mentally challenged) members of our community are priority.
