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.
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. Beazer’s Garden Workshops was founded to help others find their own way to participate. When we care for our shared spaces it builds community and respect.
It’s our responsibility to teach the next generation what they can do to respect, conserve, restore, and protect the environment.
