Regenerations International Botanical Garden is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered on the island of Kaua’i in the Hawaiian archipelago.
” To support the conservation, cultivation, and distribution of plant diversity through seed banking and community-based stewardship activities.”
This mission is achieved by:
- Educating the general public, religious, educational, business, governmental, and recreational communities about the importance of local and global plant diversity and the need for active conservation of such diversity
- Creating opportunities for the public and these communities to participate in sustainable plant conservation programs and activities by providing appropriate training and technical support
So far, Regenerations has focused the majority of its efforts on providing public events and training classes in order to building community cohesiveness around cultivating plants and sharing plant diversity.
RIBG is an all-volunteer organization consisting of seven nonprofit board members who guide the operation and daily management of the Garden’s business, supported by volunteers of varying involvement.
The Garden’s living collections are maintained in an informal decentralized network of home gardens and small farms.
