Our goal is to teach our stewards that all life has meaning in our environment. We believe that no matter how small, or large, all species are important!

Milkweed plants, the monarch butterfly's only source of substance, is diminishing at a rapid rate. The plant is used as a food source and to lay eggs. Monarchs are not only beautiful, they contribute to the vitality of our planet.

Zero waste means sharply reducing what ends up in our landfills, with a 'triple R' goal of Reduce/Re-use, Recycle. With so many sustainable choices you can make for a greener planet, we're here to help.... with the Zero Waste Weekly Challenge!

Buying local also means your supporting your community and helping local neighbors stay in business. Supporting local businesses creates connections between people and the planet!
