Meadow Club for the 21st Century

Meadowscaping for Biodiversity is a project-based, outdoor environmental education program for students and adults. Open space is necessary for biodiversity--the basis of life on Earth, Because of development and climate change, open space/wildlife habitat is being destroyed  rapidly. In our program participants repurpose unproductive turf lawn into a healthy, beautiful meadow full of native plants. This ecosystems garden offers habitat for teeming millions of creatures beneath the surface of the soil, pollinators, especially bees, birds, and other creatures. A pollinator patch/ecosystems garden planted near a vegetable garden increases the productivity of the plants.

We prepare participants with an 8-unit curriculum that includes activities on soil, water, invasive plants, and other topics related to developing a meadow. Our mission is to create wildlife habitat through ecosystems gardening and to help participants to become citizen scientists and stewards of the Earth. Although we are based in Waltham, MA, we want to expand our programs to anyone who needs them.
