About Us

ORGANIZATIONAL OVERVIEW

City Blossoms is a nonprofit whose mission is to develop and implement innovative programming and tools that build healthy neighborhoods and schools through creative, kid-driven green spaces. Washington DC is our home base where we test and innovate new resources, approaches, and techniques for designing and implementing urban gardens that are communal, educational, artistic expressions of their communities. Applying our unique brand of gardens, science, art, healthy living, and community building, we "blossom" in neighborhoods where kids, their families, and neighbors may not otherwise have access to green spaces.


ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE

City Blossoms strives to create a work environment and programs based on our values:

  • EQUITY. Strive to ensure access and inclusion for all
  • DIVERSITY. Celebrate everyone's strengths and experiences
  • RESPECT. Nurture compassion and consideration for all living things
  • COLLABORATION. Enhance our impact by joining together
  • CREATIVITY. Cultivate open-mindedness and experimentation


All City Blossoms programming aligns with the mission and values of the organization, is designed to reflect participating communities, is flexible enough to be site-specific, and makes cultural connections wherever possible.
