First off you become a member of Quality Parks. Quality Parks is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity with a mission to advocate, educate, consult park stewardship improvements on Long Island. Be Naturally Intelligent.™ Besides selling the native plants we grow, and educating folks on tick bite prevention, we collect data on the state of our parks and park resources. Citizen science volunteers review parks and park resources — the environmentalists — that care for the real Long Island. I hope we answered your question about membership. Oh, and members receive native plant purchase and related garden design consultation discounts. Create your own natural park setting. We’ll show you how.
Since we grow and test grow them, we understand how plants interact meadows and woodlands.

Mindy has a graduated degree in Environmental Studies, having also studied plant propagation, and has done graduate work in prairie and pine barrens restorations.
