Danielle M. Jones (she/her)
Weaver

Danielle’s background is in experiential and culturally-responsive nature education, mindful practices and equity work.  Unknowingly, she has been building up to this project since childhood and proudly draws on the legacy of earth-connection from her ancestors. The term “weaver” is a recognition that none of the pieces she is bringing together are new but that these beautiful and intersectional ways of being and knowing will allow us to better embrace ourselves and our community.

"My wish is to create more green spaces and functionally sustainable communities in my hometown and beyond for people of color by working to collectively change our political and social landscapes while increasing our capacity for helping others in need. There is a call for action in the Little Rock community and I truly believe that collectively we can produce positive change through good works, philanthropy, and providing equitable spaces regardless of socioeconomic background. I am interested in sourcing funding for short and long-term projects, land acquisition and development, community support events organization, and project coordination."
