Our Mission

Chicory seeks to reconnect broken chains of generational knowledge about the natural world and the species with whom we share our daily lives. Engaging with nature as a subject of inexhaustible, lifelong learning has benefits ranging from enhancing mental and physical health to becoming a more informed cohabitant of the planet. When we are able to distinguish danger from delight, we can fully enjoy and engage with our ecosystem and are more driven to care for it as our home.
