Do you wish your neighborhood was:

  • More Earth-friendly?
  • Safer?
  • Cleaner?
  • More community oriented?

Earth Resource Foundation works with you to improve environmental awareness and foster a sense of community in neighborhoods. The program provides workshops for a neighborhood's concerns, such as energy conservation, watershed issues, organic gardening, etc. It also focuses on bringing the community together through neighborhood cleanups and gatherings.

Each neighborhood is asked to adopt their part of the watershed. By cleaning up our neighborhood's trash and other debris (branches, leaves, etc.), our watersheds can be restored to a healthy state.

Working together to take ownership of one's community, your neighborhood will gain a sense of environmental, social and civic responsibility.
