Mission statement:

Bound by Beauty’s mission is to transform how we interact with nature and neighbors to create a safer, stronger, healthier, and more resilient community that will sustain us for years to come. Our motto is: Connect, Educate, Transform, Replicate.



Bound by Beauty is a nonprofit organization that transforms how we interact with nature and with neighbors, with butterflies as the catalyst.  It was created by a group of women who are passionate about protecting nature, particularly one of its most vulnerable and beautiful creations: the butterfly. Starting garden by garden and block by block, we will weave a strong web of connections between neighbors  and between butterfly and wildlife gardens, a web of healthy, green corridors that expands in all directions. Every child in every grade in every school in our community will learn about climate resilience, and be part of the solution for the problems we are bequeathing them. Every church and every community group will join us in creating a stronger, safer, more beautiful and resilient community, with the transformative power of the butterfly to open the way. And we’ll make it all replicable, so other communities in south Florida can follow our example, weaving a stronger and larger web of healthy green space throughout the region. We are all in this together — regardless of age, gender, disability, race, sexual orientation, politics, or religion — and this is our only home. Let the healing and strengthening begin!
