For the last two years The Nature Conversancy has invited City Blossoms as a partner in their new project Nature Works Everywhere. To date over 20 pollinator-friendly green spaces have been built in Washington & Baltimore. This summer Nature Works Everywhere will include an online design and measurement tool to help middle schools throughout the country. Until then, check out the first of a series of educational videos, starring the Marion Street Intergenerational Garden.
We are City Blossoms
a non-profit organization working out of the Washington D.C. area dedicated to kid-driven, community engaging, creative green spaces.
City Blossoms began nine years ago as a volunteer project and has since evolved into a year-round program that includes consulting, curriculum development (with consideration for learning standards), and regular on-site workshops. To date, City Blossoms has worked with over 3000 children and youth in various gardening projects.
City Blossoms has designed a unique method of developing and managing robust green spaces where children and youth are engaged as the main cultivators. We specialize in an art-based, hands-on approach that emphasizes the strengths and unique qualities of each learning center. All City Blossoms projects are organic and designed to work with the local environment and community needs. We look forward to bringing City Blossoms to schools and learning centers all around the area and increasing children and youth awareness about caring for the environment and themselves.
