to keep it going for future generations to enjoy
Hi, I’m Kimberly Beazer, founder of
Beazer’s Garden Workshops.
As a child growing up, learning about our world, I often wondered if there was anything I could do to help with the environmental issues I heard about in school and on the news. It seemed a “doom and gloom” situation plagued our planet. It was a concern that stayed with me and fueled the direction of my life.
Children shouldn’t feel hopeless about the condition of the world. As adults, it’s our responsibility to teach the next generation what they can do to respect, conserve, restore, and protect the environment.
We must teach ourselves to do better.
As a young adult, I started volunteering and working with eco-education-focused community organizations. Here I found people dedicated to tackling our social and ecological challenges – Administrators, Educators, Scientists, and Keepers of our shared natural resources of the earth, air, water, and human capacity. Rebels for Nature. I learned to see the beauty in the chaos and our place in it.
Over the course of my journey,
I’ve dedicated over 20 years to helping organizations build thriving Environmental Science programs, and to teaching future generations about our natural connection to plants.
I’m particularly interested in guiding the public on topics related to green infrastructure, showing where our natural and built environments work together, and our role in living in both.
