OUR TEAM

We are a nonprofit action and advocacy alliance who aims to create and support cutting-edge, project-based sustainability solutions in Arizona through civic engagement, collaboration, and education. We empower Arizona citizens to work together toward more verdant, equitable, and sustainable communities.

TOGETHER WE MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

We provide help to a number of Arizona cities by cleaning up our local parks, planting trees, refreshing and repairing existing community garden beds, and much more. We provide these services because we recognize that sustainability is the core of continued improvement of the lives of Arizonans and the protection of the state’s natural resources.
