Ean Koerner - The Wildflower Project

The Wildflower Project

Date grant awarded: 06/12/2017

Matt Wildenauer, Ean Koerner and Matthew Peterson founded The Wildflower Project in Saint Paul, Minnesota in 2015. By planting wildflower gardens in underutilized or vacant spaces, they aimed to restore the health and wellness of pollinator habitats in the Twin Cities, while bringing vibrant, natural beauty back to these urban communities. The project fosters education and awareness through volunteerism and partnerships. Ultimately, The Wildflower Project aspires to be a good neighbor, to all those who inhabit the local ecosystem. The project’s mission is to take underutilized spaces with no hope and give them a purpose.
