We aim to provide essential “Re-Building Blocks” for community environmental education.
We are the only species able to care for and protect the planet,
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 what 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.
As a young adult, I volunteered with many eco-education nonprofit organizations. There I found people dedicated to tackling our social and ecological challenges – Administrators, Educators, Scientists, and Keepers of our shared natural resources of earth, air, water, and human capacity. Rebels for Nature. I learned to see the beauty in the chaos and our place in it. I made a commitment to help teach future generations so that curious kids don’t feel hopeless.
Fast forward 26 years later, I provide Environmental Science Education services for NYC schools through my business. We highlight the interdependent nature of phenomena, through the lens of a garden, integrate NYS Science and Social Studies learning goals and incorporate Civics and stewardship as motivators for Social Emotional Leaning and Wellness for students and their families.
During the day I teach this content to grades Prek-5th, train parent volunteers and garden interns to care for these living spaces and manage several day and afterschool programs for locations around NYC.
We are proud to provide career opportunities to other garden based eco educators on their journey in educating future generations.
We have a social benefit purpose and responsibility to teach the next generation what they can do to respect, conserve, restore, and protect the environment.
