WHO WE ARE

Creating spaces where WE CAN BREATHE
We provide healing-centered outdoor experiences and culturally relevant environmental education for youth of incarcerated parents in San Antonio, Texas. The Bloom Project helps youth develop healing practices by reconnecting them with nature through experiences like meditative hikes, camping, community gardening, and healing circles.
"I became a better person and connected with parts of the world that I’ve never connected with..."
...Along with traveling the world but lastly, meeting new people and becoming open to comfortably trying new things.
