projects & PARTNERS
A youth-centered music organization that cultivates an empowering space for girls, women, trans and gender non-conforming people to collaborate and experiment in music, expression, performance, and collective care.
A project to regenerate empty lots into a resilient food forest system in the Carbondale's northeast. Using resilient species native to southern Illinois and/or bred for climate stress, the food forest will feature perennial food crops that use little water, build the health of the soil, and make steps toward local food security.
The public garden now hosts over 50 tree/bush plantings 1-2 years old. The grounds will be further developed with four community workdays slated for fall 2019.
A project to plant native species fruit and nut trees in Carbondale and the region to land owners, residents, community gardens, and food forests.
