Arkearth is a 501(c)3 nonprofit foundation focused on saving bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, bats, and other pollinators via our unique pollination accelerator projects. Our projects deploy into community gardens, urban farms, schools, universities, corporate campuses, and youth camps.
Each project is site surveyed for its unique needs, local plant, animal, and insect life, and how we can best help save pollinating species while increasing food output and providing valuable educational content and experiences for students and volunteers.
Our mission is to create a sustainable set of easy-to-manage and track environmental features, including beehives, bat houses, butterfly enclosers, hummingbird feeders, wildflower borders, and highly valuable IoT reporting architecture. Our goal is to increase local pollinators' success, food yields, and plant growth. Studies have shown projects like ours can increase food output by 30 to 60%. In at-risk neighborhoods, we also help to engage more of the residents in those projects, increase property values, and reduce reported crimes.
Arkearth is a massive initiative, and our mission is not small in its scope. However, thanks to supporting research, it is doable and scalable, beginning at a local level and with the support of donors, corporate sponsors, and volunteers. Together, we can not only help save the pollinators, but we can help eliminate food deserts and give both nutritional foods and hope to people in local communities.
Currently, we have three projects underway with another nine requests, along with additional legal and filing fees for our business entity. Our first pollination accelerator projects are the following:
1. Restorative Farms: Hatcher Station / Fairpark
3. North Dallas Community Garden Project 2023
