Mission and Action Plan
Located in the heart of Mendocino County Pomo territory
of California, and sponsored by the Cloud Forest Institute , a 501 (c)3 non profit organization, Abuela Gardens' mission is activeley doing and educating about watershed regeneration through forest fire prevention, natural building, and closed loop systems.
Abuela Gardens' mission is to foster watershed regeneration through forest fire prevention, natural building, and closed loop systems. We are a working educational demonstration site dedicated to helping the growth and healing of all beings through a continued dialogue with nature, water, fire, food, and medicine. This approach is accomplished by incorporating community, music, healing/remembrance arts, educational workshops and silence within a multi dimensional design strategy.
Our action plan is to communally care for the Earth by growing as much of our own food and medicine as possible, while regenerating the forest and aquifer we depend on. We support this process by chaperoning fire through the forest, building with earthen and harvested materials, as well as developing habitat for a diverse interface of wild and domestic creatures including bees and hummingbirds.
