Our Team


We are a diverse, enthusiastic, innovative group of pollinator-lovers who care about our natural world. We care about the beings in this world, and are working specifically to help one tiny, yet powerful, being: the Monarch Butterfly.  While this is where our efforts currently find themselves, we are firm believers in the interconnectedness of lives, and we hope that helping this one pollinator will increase the habitats and lives of all other living beings. It’s often said that the Monarch Butterfly is a “gateway pollinator” and we agree!
