About Life Frames, Inc.


Story

We incorporate local resources to transform diverse public spaces into place-based ecological learning landscapes.

Life Frames Inc. (LFI) & A Living Library (A.L.L.) are Cultivating the Human and Ecological Garden with all sectors of community!

A Living Library provides a powerful framework, methodology, and strategy for transforming barren, underused public places into living, learning, sustainable, and interactive narrative landscapes. These resulting Green Centers for Community become lush environments where we learn by participating in multiple interdisciplinary opportunities. A goal of Life Frames, Inc is to develop Branch Living Library & Think Parks locally and globally. The branches will be interconnected through green-powered digital gateways, bringing people from diverse cultures and ecologies together to learn from each other.

In NEW YORK CITY, LFI has a Branch Living Library & Think Park underway on Roosevelt Island and another being planned for Chinatown. At all Branches, students are engaged in integrated, hands-on, interdisciplinary, standards-based, learning opportunities. In SAN FRANCISCO, LFI also currently operates 3 Branch Living Libraries at 6 schools, bringing about place-based, ecological transformation in the Islais Creek Watershed (specifically Excelsior and Bernal Heights) and in the heart of Chinatown. In each community, students and caring adults focus on ecology, gardening, watersheds, literacy, multi-arts, technology, health, nutrition, youth leadership, and civic responsibility, amongst other subjects.

Life Frames is also engaged in another initiative in San Francisco to call attention to, and showcase the ISLAIS CREEK WATERSHED, which connects at least 11 communities in Southwest and Southeast San Francisco. LFI has been developing the Bernal Heights Living Library Nature Walk, linking schools, parks, streets, housing developments, and other open spaces with Native California Trees, understory, interpretive signage and other related elements, leading to the Islais Creek at the south side of St. Mary's Park. Thus far, thousands of California Native Trees and understory plants have been planted funded by CA Department of Forestry & Fire Protection and CA Strategic Growth Council and others. Next Phases will involve daylighting the Creek where possible and expanding the Nature Walk throughout the whole Islais Creek Watershed, developing resilient native landscapes interconnecting the Watershed communities.
