What We Do

Metro Blooms partners with communities to create resilient landscapes and foster clean watersheds, embracing the values of equity and inclusion to solve environmental challenges.

We believe everyone has a right to clean air, land and water.

We remove barriers to meaningful involvement in environmental projects that help protect clean water and habitat, like rain gardens that help clean water and native plantings to protect pollinators.

We share knowledge and we work together with communities to get projects in the ground. We collaborate with local residents and deeply-rooted organizations to plan deliberately for engagement tailored to the communities we serve. Our partnerships also provide opportunities for local training and employment, and space for connection, to each other and to nature.

“It brings me joy to come out here and see the flowers and the plants and see the kids enjoying the area... It’s making everybody else want to do more because they see that we all care, and it takes us all,” says Michelle, who helped lead a landscape redesign project with us in her rental community.

The project included rain gardens, pollinator-friendly plants and trees, benches, picnic tables and, for the many children who live there, a nature play area and new playground.

We all have a stake in working together to address the most difficult environmental challenges of our time. We need as many people as possible to be part of the solution.
