Nature Link’s mission is to bring greater sensitivity and attention, creativity and resources to enhance the lives of young adults with disabilities. By connecting young adults to the natural world through organic gardening, habitat restoration, exercise and healthy habits, through community events and by reawakening an awareness of the beauties of nature and the expressive arts, we help unlock the creative powers in the participants and in all of us.
Support Nature Links
As a non-profit, we rely on grants, donations and volunteers to provide our services. Consider giving your time as a volunteer working in our organic garden, helping in the kitchen or lending your expertise. If you can't give time, we will happily receive a donation of any amount you feel you can give.
