What is the Piedmont Patch Collaborative?

We aim to restore native flora and fauna displaced by rapid urbanization, and to cultivate keepers of Creation. The Piedmont Patch Collaborative is grounded in a belief that the environment and our natural resources will be better sustained, and even thrive, as organizations and individuals work to cultivate one patch at a time. The Project is envisioned as a collaborative effort of The Episcopal Church of The Advocate, the Town of Chapel Hill, the NC Botanical Gardens, the New Hope chapter of the Audubon Society, and individuals with knowledge and skills to share.
