Our Mission

Our mission is to create a healthy symbiotic relationship between people and nature through advancing environmental, economic and social regeneration, reconciling community and stakeholder engagement to advance equity.


Why we exist

The Family of Trees if a hyper-localized Northside Minneapolis tree-planting project that exists to regenerate our urban forests. We exist to eliminate environmental injustices between our local Minneapolis communities that have direct impacts on health. We exist to demonstrate and facilitate commitment to reducing global warming by taking action and changing behaviors.

Taking action to heal the planet directly from our backyards to the local community gardens, we are embarking on a massive reforestation project by creating more urban forest canopies in Minneapolis that have been drastically reduced within the last century.
