About Us

Bound by Beauty is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to transform how we interact with nature and with neighbors to create more beautiful, resilient and sustainable communities, using butterflies as the catalyst for change.

join the fight against climate change from your garden.

We designed a simple step-by-step guide to creating a biodiverse sanctuary filled with butterflies, bees and birdsong.  Although aimed at gardens in South Florida, the same principles apply no matter where you live.

13th annual Green Day street fair

Come join Bound by Beauty to celebrate the 13th annual Green Day street fair in downtown Miami Shores, where residents and visitors can explore fun activities, eat good food, mingle with friends and neighbors and – most importantly – learn about how each one of us can help heal Mother Earth by planting native plants, providing habitat for pollinators, harvesting rain water, composting kitchen and yard waste, and much more. We’d love to see you at our booth on April 29th from 3-7 pm!
