    • About

      Rewild Long Island aims to further biodiversity and climate resilience through sustainable landscaping practices such as native plantings, regenerative gardening, composting, reducing lawn chemical use, and water conservation.

      We work to introduce native plant-based gardens in public and private spaces, transforming them into thriving micro-habitats for a variety of insects, bees, birds and butterflies. In addition, our mission is to educate the public at large the value of ReWilding, as well as to advocate for change in community practices and regulations.

      We also believe that locally grown healthy food enhances our health and our connection to the land. We encourage residents to grow food alongside their native plants that attract pollinators.

      Our yards and kitchens produce a steady stream of organic and plastic waste that can be recycled and reused. We promote practices such as Composting, Vermiculture and Bokashi Fermentation to turn organic waste into valuable compost.

      We also protect aquifers, streams and Long Island Sound by avoiding fertilizers and other chemical contaminants.

      ReWild holds Spring and Fall Native Plant Sales to make perennial plants available to homeowners at affordable prices. We hold educational seminars and a variety of online and in-person events. The Summer Program to Fight Hunger and Climate Changes provides internships and volunteer opportunities for High School students looking for hands-on learning experiences over summer.
