Growing the next generation of earth stewards

Amid a rapidly changing climate, we strengthen climate resilience by educating and empowering eco-advocate leaders, landscapers, and lawmakers to convert resource-intensive green spaces into sustainable, fruitful landscapes. We aim to create healthy ecosystems for us and our planet one square foot at a time. 

THE GROWER PROGRAM

Our Growers Program trains landscaping professionals to become partners in earth stewardship. This program is pivotal in growing a skilled and sustainable workforce for green jobs by equipping participants with the knowledge and hands-on experience needed to bring more eco-friendly planting and maintenance practices to the landscaping industry.

GREEN HIVE

Our Greenhive Leadership Program helps the next generation of eco-advocate young adults gain knowledge, connections, and confidence to be active thought leaders in their community. Their capstone projects serve as a demonstration of their new skills in action. Now in its 4th cohort, our future list of colleges and universities will build on our pilot sites at Agnes Scott College, Emory University, and Georgia State University. 

GREEN LIBRARY TOURS

Our Green Library Tours program empowers eco-curious citizens to change their surroundings and actively influence their local government sustainability policies. Partnering with the Jane Goodall Institute’s Roots & Shoots program, we engage community members of all ages in earth stewardship to combat climate change by creating productive landscapes.

Community Outreach.

Our fun and interactive community sessions teach about the importance of converting traditional landscapes into beautiful Productive Urban Landscapes, pollinator gardens, and food forests to help combat climate change. Through community gatherings, Green Library tours, resources, and partnerships with other organizations, we have everything you need to level up and learn how to help integrate sustainability in public and private landscapes in your community.

Research.

We're developing partnerships and databases to explore the social, environmental, and fiscal impacts of modern day landscaping to learn more about how sustainability can impact our communities. We'll use these data to help show how we can all help make small changes in the landscapes around us to make a big impact on climate solutions.
