Mission & Vision

ChangeHampton is a community brigade to promote restorative, bio-diverse, healthy & sustainable landscaping practices and expand the Pollinator Pathways Movement on Eastern Long Island.


Since ChangeHampton began we have promoted restorative landscaping which means replacing ecologically toxic and dead turf lawns with native plants—whose root systems clean toxins in the soil—and native pollinator trees, shrubs and plants that welcome birds, insects and wild-life. In other words we promote the creation of a bio-diverse, sustainable and resilient habitat.

What you can do right now

Getting started

Making a difference about climate change, species collapse and saving our food chain starts in your own yard.  The health of our watersheds below is a function of your actions in your yard above.
