Mini Nature Reserve

Oxnard, CA

Mission

Our mission is to restore and preserve nature in urban environments through landscape projects that engage, educate, and empower the local community. We do this by helping low-income communities create what we call "MiniNature Reserves" and "Community Nurseries." A MiniNature Reserve is a native garden in a public park, school, parkway, neighborhood, or small business storefront. A Community Nursery grows native plants for these gardens and sells them to the public to fund our work. In addition, Community Nurseries double as a green spaces and free community education centers.

MiniNature Reserve Program

The MiniNature Reserve Program contacts small businesses in low income areas and asks for permission to beautify their storefront at no cost to them. Upon business owner approval, we install California native plants in parkways and/or containers. We assign one or two volunteers to maintain and care for the area while it becomes established. Each Mini Nature Reserve project follows the below guidelines:

The small business owner agrees to supply the water during establishment.

The small business owner does not pay for any plants or labor.

Plants in parkways are never taller than 3 feet.

Each parkway gets a cute little sign attached to it.

All plants are native to the zipcode they are located in.
