Heal the Land, Grow Community

Land Stewardship

Our approach to stewardship, the responsible management of resources, starts with the community. This means a lot of people with their hands in the dirt. In community, the task becomes lighter!

We don’t use industrial equipment or pesticides to steward the land. This inevitably means more opportunities to grow relationships with nature and each other. 

No prior skills are necessary. We’ll provide all the tools and guidance you need to be part of a productive and fun day on the land. 

  • Stewardship at Preserves: Depending on season, activities include: non-native plant removal, road, trail, and infrastructure maintenance, trail-building, and wildfire fuel reduction.
  • Stewardship at our Community Gardens: At Bayer Farm and Andy’s Unity Park, we invite you to get outside, stretch your legs, and meet new friends while you weed, plant, turn compost, or prepare new garden beds.

Stewardship opportunities run from one-day drop-ins to ongoing commitments. We also welcome community, corporate, youth, and school groups for organized stewardship days.

" Nature is medicine for every aspect of your humanity. If you’re on the land with your hands and your feet, you get dirty, educating people, doing stewardship projects, you want to work toward conserving and restoring it.” "
