Empower Your Community
At EarthWorks Institute, we define healthy living as the ability to have a deeper relationship with ourselves and nature. For those in the Greater Rochester area trails, parks, waterways, mountains, gorges, and other environmental jewels give us the chance to begin building these relationships from a young age. However, learning how to live well also means being empowered with the skills, resources, and ability to pursue these relationships.
Challenges such as unemployment, poverty, lack of transportation, and unfamiliarity with our local bioregion prevent our communities from developing and connecting with the world at large in more fulfilling ways. By helping families gain access to these relationships, EarthWorks Institute and our Forest Guides seek to improve quality of life in our city and the Greater Rochester Region. We do this by focusing on family development, wellness, and experiential education, providing programs that empower people, but especially youth with invaluable life-skills, building healthy, lasting bonds across our communities and green spaces.
