Support our Work
In 2021 we inaugurated our Environmental Access Fund to provide equitable participation for anyone who is experiencing financial hardship OR those who identify as Black, Indigenous, Asian, Latinx or have been otherwise racialized. In just 2021, 367 of 536 program participants utilized the fund, almost 70% of our total participants! We are grateful to be partnering with new groups and organization to make nature-based education accessible to more humans each year!

Land Acknowledgement and Social Equity
We gratefully acknowledge that modern American agriculture, herbalism and nature connection practices rest squarely on the shoulders of many generations of black and brown people whose lands, labor and/or knowledge were taken by force. Our farm is located on the unceded home of the of the Seneca people, one of the six nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy.
Shimmering Light has a 25 year history of proactively increasing equitable access to nature-based education for people who lack access to nature for many reasons.
