Nature play every day for children and their families.

Mission

Our mission is to create outdoor learning gardens for city children and their families, combining nature play, food gardening and environmental education. The Elizabeth Conservancy, Inc. (EC), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was founded from the perspective of loss—the loss of natural play spaces for healthy child development and the loss of garden space to grow food. A multitude of child health conditions and greater food insecurity is the result of these losses and the status quo we seek to change. Our three-fold strategy is to combine natural play space and food growing space with the permanent educational resources of an eco-center to launch and encourage lifestyle change and stewardship of our local environment long term. Educators will also benefit from Project Outdoor Learning.
