ReScape California is a non-profit organization that educates about and advocates for a whole-systems approach to landscaping that works in harmony with the natural world and addresses the changing environment. ReScape’s landscaping practices are based on 8 regenerative principles which foster soil health, sequester carbon, conserve water and protect habitat and valuable resources while reducing waste and preventing pollution in our communities and watersheds.
The need is dire, and whether it is a small urban landscape, a community garden plot, or 5,000 acres of a city park, we know that how we tend our landscapes make a difference. We will continue to lead in the response to the climate crisis with research and our science-based education and advocacy programs.
We have achieved much over the years, and know that we could not do what we do without your support, and we thank you! Our service area has grown, and as we receive requests for services, volunteers and research throughout California, we invite you to join us in supporting our diverse communities. Make a donation.
December 3rd is Giving Tuesday, a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world on December 3rd and every day. It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community.
We at ReScape are sending a message asking you to join us in our work. Our whole systems regenerative landscape practices work is very local (one landscape at a time), and simultaneously in concert with the global community working on millions of acres of land for water protection and savings, soil health, habitat protection, clean air, carbon sequestration. Your support fuels our activities and inspires our efforts in this world where we must grieve what we have lost (water, habitat, family, land, species, housing, health). The best science indicates that we have a narrow window to each do our part and together make the changes necessary to slow global warming. We have accomplished much this year – and with your continued support and involvement we can together do more. Now, more than ever, we need to lift up and celebrate those values that bring us together and create joy. We need more generosity in the world – join us!
