Established in 2006, Backyard Abundance is an environmental education nonprofit that helps build vibrant communities by creating beautiful, resilient landscapes that provide healthy food and habitat.
We envision the growth of environmentally-beneficial communities that meet everyone's basic needs of survival today and in the future. Yards and public areas grow healthy food and natural materials to nourish our bodies and support our local economy. The land supports healthy ecosystems by providing habitat, supporting healthy water quality and emulating nature's resiliency. This community focus creates a healthy social fabric, ecological integrity and a spirit of abundance for all.
Our educational services deeply embrace permaculture ethics and principles: care of people, care of earth, create and share surplus. Through public presentations, experiential classes, community yard tours, landscape design consultations and implementation oversight, we help people create ecologically healthy landscapes that reflect their personal values and permaculture ethics.
The Backyard Abundance Endowment Funds will be used at the discretion of the Board of Directors to meet strategic and mission-driven environmental goals and objectives.
