Mission

SomethingBigger serves as the local educational resource for the community on all things environment, organic gardening and sustainability; including our buzzing, flying and furry friends. Helping animals in need is part of our work. Programs range from our conservation & preservation activity 'ONE, TWO, TREE', to teaching children how to make their own honey with our 'Honey I'm Herm' program and 'The Art of Hen', where children can collect eggs and learn about backyard chickens. Worms, compost, recycling, the birds and the bees. . covering it all has provided an opportunity in our neighborhood for children and families to better understand the "HOW" to incorporate sustainability in an urban environment. As a result, we have been able to achieve somethingBigger, in our neighborhoods.
