Everyone deserves plants and no place is unplantable. 

We create greenspaces and gardens that engage people on their sidewalks, in public plazas and open streets. On the ground, plant by plant, we transform neighborhoods, homeless shelters and nursing homes, schools and even jails. We support all people in their quest to improve their lives and communities with urban horticulture.

Design, Build, & Maintain

Our Services

Beautiful greenspaces bring joy, fosters community pride and increases a property’s appeal. We design, build and maintain greenspaces and gardens that beautify buildings, developments, and neighborhoods with everything from planters to multi-acre gardens, to tree pits, raised beds and greenways. 

Connecting people and plants

Our Impact

We improve our city’s greenspaces and engage people with plants. The Hort’s programs are diverse, practical, therapeutic, and educational. We show that well-planned, equitable urban horticulture has the power to transform individuals, communities, and our environment.
