Each project in the 7 UPG Locations physically changes the world through Organic Stewardship (no herbicide), Native Habitat Planting, Nursery, Butterfly Re-Introduction and Monitoring, building Organic Gardens for low-income families in Liberty City and Little Haiti, Seeds for Haiti, and Eco-Art using Exotics as a primary material at Art Basel. UPG Partners with Parks, Colleges, Schools, Environmental and Community Organizations. http://www.urban-paradise.orgSpeaker: Sam Van Leer, Founder & Exec. Dir, of UPG.
